Fortifications in Komárno - Komárom (Slovak)
System of Fortifications at the Confluence of the Rivers Danube and Váh in Komárno - Komárom (Slovak) is part of the Tentative list of Hungary in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.
Komarom (Hungary) and Komarno (Slovakia) face each other on the opposite banks of the Danube at an important crossing point since Roman times. Komarom’s Old Fortress gained strength from the Middle Ages on, in battles against the Mongols and later the Ottomans. It effectively defended the border of the Ottoman and Austrian Empires. In the late 19th century, a defense line of three newer forts was added.
