Okoličná na Ostrove, komárno, Slovakia

Hi, my name is Juraj from Slovakia. First of all I would like to show you my home town Komárno, but if you have plans to visit Hungary from Bratislava or Slovakia from Budapest or another reason why you need the help of a guide.

Please let me know, in a message on this page.
Do not hesitate to ask for details.
I am glad to meet your expectations.
My fee is 130 USD/day witouth any additional costs.
Transportation and accomodatiom is not included.
Komárno is situated on the Slovak Hungarian border which is divided by the river Danube and connected by the bridge named after the wife of Austrian emperor Elisabeth. . .
Only during the 20th century Komárno changed countries five times despite the fact that the town has been standing still in the same place from the beginning of the 10th century.
The town is now inhabited by two nationalities Hungarians and Slovaks.
My answer to the question why you should visit Komárno and why with me is simple.
Komárno is a good place with plenty of things to see and do and learn not only about the town itself but about the history of Central Europe too. My mixed nationality, Hungarian and Slovak, background allows me to give you a clear understanding of the happenings in this region. What is one of the reasons why Komárno is worth visiting? Because here is the biggest well preserved fortification system in central Europe which is the main spectacle of the region. It was by no accident that it was built here on the main road alongside the River Danube about 100 km from three capital cities Vienna, Budapest and Bratislava.
Due to its strategic importance in the area its inhabitants changed several times during its turbulent history.
The Celts, Romans, Avars, Franks, Slavic tribes, Hungarians, Austrians, Czechs and Slovaks left their visible fingerprints on the town.
On a one day trip you can see the Old castle, New castle, Vag line, Palatine Line, Fort Csillag, Fort Igmand and the enormous Fort Monostor, also called the Gibraltar of the Danube, and the beautiful classicistic and baroque town centre with Europe place. During the tour I will give you a unique insight into the history of central Europe with a good sense of humour and last but not least cheap and good beer.
As I said you can reach Komárno easily, comfortably and cheaply by train from three capital cities: Vienna, Budapest and Bratislava. I'll send you all travel information before your tour.


I took the tour with Juraj, who surprised me with his extraordinary knowledge about the history of the region and the town; I was amused with his excellent polite humour all the time.
