Geographical location and transport infrastructure
Due to its excellent location the town is within relatively easy reach of Bratislava, Budapest and even Vienna. It has a pleasant climate; the number of sunny days is high. Since there are two rivers, it is also accessible by water. There is a winter harbour and a transshipment port with railway access. Not only does the confluence of the Váh and Danube boast with a beautiful natural environment, it also offers great opportunities for doing sports and walking in the nature.
Komárno is located in the immediate vicinity of several important European roads and railways: it is in the vicinity of the main railway between Hungary and Berlin, and it lies on the railway line between Budapest and Vienna. The M1 motorway (Budapest-Vienna) is also near. The town is connected to the Slovak road network by the I/63 and I/64 1st-class roads. The building of another bridge over the Danube in the western part of the town has also been included in short-term plans. It will divert traffic from the town centre and from the Elisabeth Bridge, which connects Komárno and the neighbouring Komárom in Hungary. The railway station in Komárno also comes up to the highest expectations (1st category). Nové Zámky, Dunajská Streda, Bratislava and Komárom (Hungary) are accessible by rail from the town. There is also a railway between Komárno and the town of Kolárovo, but lately it has been out of use for economic reasons.
The closest international airports are situated 100 kilometres from the town, namely in Bratislava and Budapest. However, there is also an airport 50 kilometres away, the Győr-Pér International Airport, which can also accommodate passenger planes.
The town also offers excellent opportunities for water transportation. The port in Komárno is on the Rhine–Main–Danube waterway. The Váh waterway connects with this transportation network in Komárno.
The town also offers excellent opportunities for cyclists as a result of considerable development projects that have been implemented recently. The Danube Bike Trail, which is a part of the Eurovelo 6 bike route, goes through the town. The trail goes on the Danube embankments from Passau to Budapest through Vienna and Bratislava. The Váh Cycling Route, which connects the town of Trenčín with Šaľa, Vlčany, Neded, Dedina Mládeže and Kolárovo, also connects with the Danube Bike Trail in Komárno.
