Nitra Castle

Reviewed By eilonglen - Ashkelon, Israel

Dominating the city in all directions from its lofty perch on a hilltop above the Old Town, one should not miss the opportunity to visit this brooding 14th century medieval castle. A steep but non-stressful climb up the cobbled path from the Old Town brings one directly to the gates of the courtyard and the imposing statue of Pope John Paul II, who visited the castle and its integrated Roman Catholic Cathedral of St. Emmeram, within, during his visit to the city. I would imagine that this design feature was to ensure the safety of the sanctuary during wartime over the centuries.
Originally built in the Gothic style, Nitra Castle is impressive in its somber beauty and the apartments and artifacts are worth the climb up Zobor hill, if only for the great views of the town and its surrounds.

Cerveny Kamen Castle

Reviewed By Art K - Jelenia Gora, Poland

Amazing castle located along Slovakia's wine route , remembering time when Slovaks and Hungarians lived in peace here. Plenty of great portraits of dead people who mattered, old furniture from different eras , fantastic empty cellars that are always really cold!. Impressive location on a high ridge gives great view of surrounding countryside.

Church of St. Michael the Archangel

Reviewed By JXXXR

I came here around midday on a Thursday in March and overall this site offers great views, but what you can currently see is a building site. The church itself is small and usually isn't accessible. This is probably worth doing if you're in Nitra for a long period of time but it's not a must visit.

Komarno City Centre

Reviewed By Danielle P - Prague, Czech Republic

Mostly Hungarian-speaking population, unfortunately I have to say that there is nothing special to visit at the centre :(. But there is an old anti-Turkish fortress and part of The City wals around the town, accessible also from inside in recent years. A few swimming/sunbathing possibilities by Danube in the summer.

Corgon

Reviewed By Mark D - Burnley, United Kingdom

A historical statue in the heart of Nitra just below the castle. I believ the saying goes he was 1 of the strongest men in Slovakia, and local people say the statue is holding the wall up.
He also has a local Slovakian beer Corgan named after him!!
Worth a visit while heading to the castle.

Nitra Calvary

Reviewed By Jozef S - Bratislava, Slovakia

Similar to Nitra castle, Kalvaria offers beautiful view of the city, but from a different angle.
To get to the top you need to walk up the hill (make sure you have proper shoes, there is no paved walkway - it's all stones, gravel & grass).

Courtyard of Europe

Reviewed By Kristina F - Bratislava, Bratislava, Slovakia

It is a pity that Komarno is still much underestimated and thus quite weakly visited by tourists. The history and the monuments of this town would definitely deserve more. Courtyard of Europe and the main Klapka square form the heart of the town with charming atmosphere. The Courtyard is formed of houses which represent different European countries. There are small caffees and shops on the courtyard, making it an ideal place for rest and meetings, but unfortunately a part of the houses are not inhabited. I personally have very nice memories of this place as in the past, before the Courtyard of Europe has been built, my grandparents used to live here. So standing there I can easily recall the flavours, colors and the nicest childhood memories. So for me it is a magical place!
