At the confluence of the Váh (Vág) and Danube Rivers find you Komárno, the town that belongs to one of the oldest towns in Slovakia. King Belo IV provided the settlement with town priviliges. At that time Komárno was the fifth biggest town in the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy. Despite the fact that the town perished a lot as it was hit by wars and various natural disasters - such as earthquakes, floods, fire, epidemics - a lot of cultural monuments have been preserved. Because of its historical and architectonic value, the fortress is declared as a national cultural monument. At present in bastion VI, which was renovated, is an exhibition of the museum - Roman Stonework. It is the largest collection of its kind in Slovakia. In the historical centre of the town there are forty monuments and three national cultural monuments. Franz Lehár, one of the most famous composers, was born in Komárno on 30th April 1870. His birthplace once stood in Palatine street (from 1980 Lehár park is in its place with the statue of F. Lehár). In commemoration of the composer the town arranges an annual festival called Lehár Days, an international competition in performing operettes. Komárno is also the hometown of Mór Jókai, the world-famous Hungarian romantic writer and novelist. In commemoration of the famous writer Jókai Days are held each year. An exeptional tourist attraction of the town is Europe Place, which was created in the historical centre of the town in 1999-2000. In the courtyard of Europe Place houses are erected representing the typical architecture of 45 European countries and regions.
