Komárno, a Town Divided by a Border



Last summer, we were craving for adventure, when we decided to go to Déli train station, and bought tickets for a random train. We had no idea of what we were going to see, and this felt kind of great. 



After a few hours of travelling, we found ourselves by the Slovakian border, and of course, we needed to cross that! We crossed a nice Danube bridge, and started walking around town, looking for signs and streets to cross.


 We soon found the main street, full of colourful old houses, that lead us to the centre of the historical town. We could see amazing buildings, and my favourite one, St Andrew's Church, which was being reconditioned at the time. 

 In the main square (Klapka), we saw some great buildings, all of them really colourful.



  Afterwards, we went to see the fortress, which was huge and breathtaking! :)

As we were wandering around town, we found an interesting square - which later turned out was the Europe Place. There were lots of colourful buildings, a huge fountain, and lots of statues of historical figures. 




 At the end of the day, we went back to the Hungarian side of the town, and we explored some of its wonderful fortresses.


Do you have a favourite place in Slovakia?
