Named for the ancient castle of Dowina situated on the junction of the rivers Danube and Morava, between Bratislava, Slovakia and Vienna, Austria. Golden Music’s owners visited Stanislav, Dowina’s creator, near this place in 2011. We went to buy his collection of over 100 violins—he, a trained violin luthier, was selling because of the success of the Dowina guitars! Golden Music in turn became the exclusive US dealer of the Dowina guitar.
"Nowadays the castle ruins remind us of an era of great glory and are a luminous inspiration for sensitive artists." -Stanislav, Luthier and creator of Dowina.

"One day we were sitting with my friends by the fire and all of a sudden one of them brought a Dowina guitar with the words: Here you go, play on this! I didn’t forget it since the first pluck and now I have my own."
