we really enjoyed our tour to Devin castle and wine tasting with Linda - it was very interesting to learn the history and the wines were fantastic! The views on the river from the top of the castle are great but also the unusual wines (made from currant) are definitely worth exploring. So I definitely recommend doing this tour if you want to explore more of Slovakia
