General descriptionThe closeness of the border and the Danube river has always determined the life and the unique structure of the town. The parts of Komárom are: Szőny (Brigetio) which used to be a strategic center of the ancient Pannonia province, and Koppánymonostor which is famous for its natural beauty and the Benedictine Monastery destroyed in the time of Turkish occupation. The main attraction of Komárom is the medicinal water that is rich in minerals and constitutes the basis of the bathing and medical complex which invites guests to recover or refresh all the year round. The most famous sight of the town is the fortification system which is unparalleled in Europe. The parts of this system in Hungary are: Star fortress, Igmándi fortress and Fort Monostor. Despite its gigantic size this fort system is uniform regarding both the architecture and the building materials. The top level of the forts has already sunk down to the ground level so it is covered with trees and wild flowers as part of the nature.
