Located about 10 miles west of Bratislava, Devin Castle was once part of the Roman border in the first century A.D. and later became the seat of the Great Moravian Empire and a strategic post during the Turkish Wars. It’s situated on a high cliff overlooking the Morava and Danube rivers and stands on the border between Slovakia and Austria. It’s easy to get to. It’s a 20 min bus ride from the city centre.
