The name Devínska Nová Ves did not become official until 1845. The settlement of Devínska Nová Ves is very old, dating back at least to the Late Stone Age. Objects from the Bronze and Iron Ages were found here. Its territory was part of Great Moravia with a Slavic population. Linguists date the origin of the village to the 14th century.
The first mention of Devínská Nová Ves comes from about 1451 as "Nová Ves". In 1918, after the end of the First World War, Devínska Nová Ves became a place of fighting for Bratislava between the Czech-Slovak and Hungarian armies. On December 31, 1918, Bratislava and the villages in its vicinity became part of the first Czech-Slovak Republic. In 1928 it was incorporated into the district of Bratislava. In 1948, Devínska Nová Ves found itself on the border of two political systems. It was a place from which it was possible to escape to neighboring Austria by wading across the Morava River. When the European continent was divided by barbed wire in 1955, the Iron Curtain stretched directly across Devínská Nová Ves along the Morava River. Due to this, Devínska Nová Ves was doomed to extinction. Residents had to have special identification cards and permission to enter the border area.
In 1960, it became part of the Bratislava-okolie district, and later, due to the fact that almost 90% of the population worked in Bratislava, it became part of Bratislava, the fourth district on January 1, 1972 (the Bratislava-okolie district ceased to exist).
