The first steps of researchers were motivated by finding Dowina – the seat of Prince Rastislav. The very first findings by the archaeologist Inocent Ladislav Červinka in the castle at the beginning of the 20th century indicated that there was a very high probability that the research was going in the right direction. However, cultural and historical layers of Devín are much more interwoven and broader, reach far beyond the tradition of Great Moravia, and for archaeologists it still represents a great challenge. Some important discoveries are unparalleled in the region of the middle Danube River.
