It's only 2e for student tickets, so you can afford to go visit this beautiful ruin. The problem is that you have to take a bus there which only runs every hour (1:30, 2:30...) so plan ahead! The view from atop is breathtaking, I would recommend bringing a picnic and eating up there. There are shops and restaurants at the... More

Technically Devin castle is in a suburb of Bratislava. You catch the bus under the SNP bridge bus station. 15 mins bus ride later you feel like you in the country. Castle on the convergence of Danube and Moravia rivers. It had been a strategic position since 4 th century . There is remnants of 4 th century Iron Age... More

Lovely castle to walk around and at night it is lit and has a lovely atmosphere. The restaurant is very good and not very expensive.

This castle is nice place for Sunday afternoon trips with your family. Under the castle are few stands with local drinks and food, you before you head up, you can full your stomach. To step up is bit hard but the view is worth it.

A very nice walk uphill past some interesting sculptures and a breathtaking view. The ruins are nice, and the site deserves funding to restore the uppermost part - go there and support!!

For those who are staying 2 days or more in Bratislava I highly recommend this castle. Beautiful landscape and a small museum about the life in Slovakian middle ages.

This is a great opportunity to see some real Slovak history, we saw offers of an organised tour here for 55 Euros but managed to go ourselves for less than 6 euros each. The castle can be reached by taking the 29 bus from the bus station under the UFO bridge, its the last stop on the route so you... More

There is nothing much to see here, but you will love it just for the view of the ruins up on the hill. Unfortunately, when I was there the upper castle was closed for visitation (they said restoration works had to be done, but this has been stopped since 2010 due to the lack of funds :l ). There are... More

The setting of the castle is fantastic with great scenery and lovely setting. The castle from afar looks very nice but the problem resides is that after to climb the very step hill, a large part of the castle is closed due to lack go funding. So,ig you go for the environments it is great but if you go for... More
