Once one city on the Danube, now two separate cities in two different states. One on Slovak - Komárno and one in neighboring Hungary - Komárom. And the city of Komárom today we head for knowledge of His beauty and rich history.

The town of Komarom is located in Hungary, along the border with Slovenskem, on the right bank of the great European river of Danube. Population of nearly 20,000 inhabitants and for the adjacent river and its location is one of the major river ports, rail and road border crossings. But if we go for a walk in this city, you say something of its rich history. It dates back to Celtic times.

Subsequently Celts replaced Romans , who have built the fortification system of watchtowers and military camps. Aside from the northern border line also known as the Limes Romanus. Furthermore, there gradually replaced the Goths, Avars, Slavs, until finally there permanently settled ancient Hungarians, whose origin we can find in Asia.

In the 16th century, the city was twice besieged by the Turks, but they recharge it failed. In the 18th century the city experienced fast development and it became one of the most populated cities in the country (in this time it was historical town of Komarno on both banks of the Danube). The city played an important role during the Napoleonic wars and the Revolution of 1848 /, 1849.
