Devín

Devín

  It is the most important part of Bratislava from the points of view of paleontology, archeology and history. The most ancient messages about "civitas dowina" come from the year 864. In that time there was a hill-fort and a graveyard at the confluence of the Danube and Morava rivers. Its unique position at the crossroads of two trading routes (the Dunube and "Amber" routes) influenced the development of crafts and the village itself. The trade village changed into a small town in the 11th-12th centuries. Today Devín is an attractive place for both, the inhabitants of Bratislava and visitors from other parts of Slovakia or from abroad.
