    Gyor to Komarno - 50.2km

    June 28, 2016 in Slovakia ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Nice cycle through little villages, local forested areas and farms.

    Watched one combine harvester cut and collect wheat and another one bale up the "leftovers" for animal feed.

    Komarno has 2 parts. One on the Hungarian side of the Danube and the other on the Slovakian side of the river.

    Food is a lot cheaper in Hungary, who also still have their own currency - the Forint. Yesterday's lunch of 2 Kebap in Pita and Coke was a mere €3 😊.

    Many Slovakian people cross the bridge from Slovakia to go shopping at Tesco's on the Hungarian side of the river.

  • Day17

    to Komarom via Gyor

    May 24, 2016 in Hungary ⋅ ☁️ 14 °C

    The temperature dropped 20 degrees C overnight announced by huge peals of thunder. First two hours of cycling were damp but with a tailwind on good cycle tracks.

    Weathered a shower in a bakery in Gyor that happened to do good coffee and cake.

    The approach to Gyor from the south is pretty and sudden and the old town is attractive. However leaving Gyor going East takes a long time with industrial scenery. There is a huge Audi plant to the European which makes 90% of all Audi engines.

    A section of the official route was unsurfaced and nearly unrideable after the rain.

    Since finding digs in Komorom I've walked over the Danube to Slovakia and back but then been pinned in by more rain.

    Pics: poppies, crane nesting and tending a chick on top of a telegraph pole, view along the Danube.

    Komarno

    September 30, 2015 in Slovakia ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    Another trip over into Slovakia today to the historic township of Komarno, where the Danube and Vah rivers meet. Today the town is split - the northern half being in Slovakia (Komarno), the biggest, and the southern part on the other side of the Danube, in Hungary (Komarom). It is historically quite important and several items of interest are still here today to see including Klapka Square and the Komarno fortress.

    On arriving we were again handed over to a local tour guide (as explained previously, it is against the rules not to use a local tour guide). However, I think Zoltan would have done a much better job because of his much better command of English. This particular guide spoke with a very thick accent and we struggled to comprehend most of his spiel.

    First stop was a bathroom break. We formed a queue at the door and were amused at handing over a coin (10 huf) to receive a couple of sheets of toilet paper. One or two brave souls requested the ration be doubled, and we stood giggling, loo paper in hand while we waited our turn for the cubicle.

    The walking tour was quite extensive, and the town is again, very pretty and well kept. We were shown Klapka Square, the Museum, Town Hall, Courthouse, University, but the relevance and significance of most of them were lost in translation.

    One quite interesting place was 'Europe Square', where the buildings were specifically built to represent the architecture of different countries in Europe. All are shops and cafes hoping to attract the tourist dollars.

    Lunch was at Klapka Restaurant. where we were welcomed personally by the owner, and another feast of carbs and meat with few vegetables was presented. I discovered that young James had been eating almost nothing of the included meals, taking his mum after each of these meals in search of whatever fast food restaurant was to be found. During the afternoon, we were given free time to wander. The weather was beautiful, and Rae and I wandered up to the outside of the fortification. Inside I think was reserved for an additional paid tour which we weren't part of. Another beautiful European town to remember
