What will you experience here?
The cross-border area of the Slovak Republic and Austria offers various ways how to spend you free time enjoying the nature and culture at the same time. At first our guides from BROZ will lead you through the nature trail of the Devínska Kobyla National Nature Reserve (on the very first hills of Carpathians) with astonishing view to Austria and its National Park Donau-Auen. The reserve itself is interesting from the geological, paleontological as well as botanical point of view. In huge stones you could find here prints of the various scallops or even shark teeth. On the area of only 100 ha more than 1 700 higher plant species could be found. When you will walk down to the Devín district the visit of the castle ruins will offer you great view down the confluence of two rivers – the Morava and the Danube. Under the castle you could have nice meal and buy some traditional local currant wine. Heading to the harbour you will find a collection of information panels and for those more courageous of you our guides will take you to the adventurous jungle walk through the Slavonic Island Reserve.
