The Museum of the City of Bratislava is renovating Devín Castle - its largest and most popular national cultural monument. Renovation and reconstruction work on open-air historical middle- and upper-castle parts started in July – in accordance with the Regional Monuments Office in Bratislava and ICOMOS (International Council for Monuments and Sites) guidelines.
The work uses only locally-sourced quarry stone in line with the original masonry, and traditional lime mortar that matches the colour and texture. Work has also started on the cella memoriae over the early-Christian archaeological finds. A new info-nav system has been designed with MAPA architekti and Hungry studio to present this cultural site dynamically, including visitor inclusivity and full accessibility. In addition, the project will also create new rest zones and a redesigned castle entry point for visitors.
