Abstract: The V and B light curves of the classical nova V339 Del, discovered on August 14, 2013, are presented. The V light curve of the nova was used to estimate the times of decline from brightness maximum V = 4.4 mag, reached on August 16.47, 2013, as t2,V = 10 days, t3,V = 18 days, so it can be classified as a fast nova. We determined the basic parameters of the nova: absolute magnitude at maximum MV,max = -8.70±0.03, interstellar extinction E(B-V) = 0.184±0.035 and distance d = 3.2±0.3 kpc. The echelle spectroscopy of the nova obtained on August 15 and 17, 2013 with the 0.6-m Cassegrain telescope at the Stará Lesná Observatory is discussed.
