Walking tour and sightseeing 8hr

In our tour we will see the fortification system of Komárno/Komárom which includes the old fortress, the new fortress, the Palatine line, Fort Monostor, Fort Igmand, Fort csillag and other interesting places in Komárom on both sides of the Danube with a lot of information about the town.
Naturally I'm flexible about the program to meet your expectations.
Please note that I'm not a smart photographer, the pictures which you can see in the slide show were not taken, in a tricky way, from one place, actually they were taken from different places, which are scattered several kilometres from each other in the towns on both sides of the river Danube. It shows the enormous complex which was designed to accommodate more than 200 000 military men in the 19th century and made it the biggest fortification system in Central Europe so it is really worth visiting.
