Devin Castle, Bratislava Reviews
Really interesting old castle. Definitely worth a visit if you're in Bratislava. Lovely little pub for a coffee or a pint right next to it too. It's only €2 for entry. It's quite steep so wouldn't recommend it if you can't walk far/long, also don't get the bus if you're not a great walker. It's only €6 for an Uber and it's a bit of a walk from the bus stop.
It is a nice castle or fortification to visit. During the winter season is cold and windy and in compensation the prices as low (2€). As most of the castles and fortifications, its location is strategic and the the views of the Danube river are amazing. Going to the upper part in the hill, there is also an old cemetery and ruins of a church and also there is magnificent place to see also the Danube. Worth to visit it.
Not so distant from Bratislava, there are some buses to reach it from the city center. There's a little museum and a bucolic view on the border with Austria across the river. Great choice if you're spending more than one day in Bratislava. You can have a walk among some firm animals and also taste typical food and beers in one of the restaurant nearby. Children will love it.
Nice and beautiful place. Could easily be reached by public transportation. It's quite a climb up, so sadly not for everybody. Beautiful all-around view of the landscape.
Steeped in history. Interesting site at the confluence of Danube and Morova. Stunning tower ripe for Rapunzel.
