“close to Bratislava, the fantastic remainings of Hrad Devin.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012 via mobile

Unfortunately some parts were closed from tourists, but the whole park is beautiful and clean. The panorama is splendid. The entry fee is really worth it. I highly recommend the castle to everyone.

“Old Ruins, (worth a visit)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

This is a trip back in time! We loved walking around the old ruins and dreaming of the rich history that unfolded here. One can almost hear Napolean's canons blasting away at the centuries-old castle.

“Well worth the trip to Devin!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

It's a little out of the way (take the bus from under the main bridge in Bratislava), but the trip was very well worth it! Admission is less than 3 euros and therefore is well worth the price! The vies were wonderful. I think that most of the tourists were Eastern European, we were the only Americans/English speakers, but don't worry every worker there could easily communicate with us.
I would absolutely go back and would recommend this to anybody.

“A good half day trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

It takes less than 25 mins to get here by bus number 29 from under the Novy Most bridge. The bus turns around and returns to Bratislava from outside the castle. Good views from the castle and an interesting art exhibition in one of the rooms. There are places to get food and drink by the castle entrance. Makes a good trip outside the city.

“castle on a hill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

Take a no. 29 bus from under Novy Most out to Devin Castle, at the confluence of the Danube and Moravia rivers. The castle houses a small museum but for me was more about the views across to Austria and along the Danube. The castle in itself has information boards around the different parts giving you the history and is a pleasant place to while way a few hours
