When in Bratislava, don't miss the trip to the castle of Devin! It is very close to the old town od Bratislava, around 10 km and you'll get there with ease. Standing on a massive cliff, 212 meters above the ground, the castle serves as a museum with several exhibitions. A very popular place for Bratislava's families to spend their afternoon, this ruin (an important frontier place in Great-Moravian era) symbolizes Slavic fellowship and unity. No wonder it is a National cultural monument, depicted on Slovak stamps and old coins.
