DEVIN CASTLE – On the confluence of the Danube and Morava rivers, where the Austrian and Slovak borders meet, you can see the ruins of initially gothic castle Devin. The castle witnessed the glory and fall of Great Moravia, the first Slavonic state formation. The history of the castle starts from the age of the Celts and ends with the arrival of Napoleon’s army, which blew the castle up. For photography lovers this is place that simply must be added to your collection. Would you prefer to travel in style and go by speedboats? No problem. Just ask for more details.
DEVIN REDCURRANT WINE TASTING – The essential part of the Devin region is traditional currant wine, made from red or black currants. You are going to love its sweet and gently bitter taste.
