Exhibition: Devín Castle in the 13th–20th century

Place on the confluence of the Danube and Morava rivers inhabited uninterruptedly for almost 7000 years. The Castle was built near Danube fords and on the crossroad of the Danube and Amber roads over the confluence of the Danube and Morava.

The grounds of the national heritage site – Devín Castle – are not only a significant archaeological locality, but also a geological, zoological and botanical one. Devín Castle rock is also a national nature landmark of the 4th level of nature protection. On the castle grounds, it is possible to see not only the ruins of a medieval castle, but also foundations of buildings dating to the Roman and Great Moravian period. Devín Castle offers two exhibition premises. The rock of the Upper Castle includes caves that host a permanent exhibition and the cellars of the Renaissance palace in the courtyard of the Middle Castle provide a place for temporary exhibitions. Devín Castle, administered by the Bratislava City Museum, receives more than 200 000 visitors every year.

Permanent exhibition: Devín Castle in the 13th–20th centuries
From 2017, impressive rooms of caves of the Upper Castle in the castle rock host the permanent exhibition titled Devín Castle in the 13th–20th centuries. More than 300 archaeological finds from Devín Castle help to present the building of Devín Castle, its owners and key events that occurred in Devín. The archaeological exhibition is completed with the presentation of the geological history of the castle rock and unique display of the remnants of the Tertiary sea. These are represented by sea sand with respective fauna and noticeable influences of the sea level.

Author of the exhibition: Mgr. Katarína Harmadyová, PhD.
