"Not even a passport stamp?" Komarno by Ewingjr98
Komarno Travel Guide: 17 reviews and 17 photos
On our way to Bratislava from Budapest, we stopped on the Hungarian side of the border at Komarom, Hungary, then walked over the bridge to Komarno. At the small border crossing we got just a cursory glance at our passports and were waived through without even a stamp :(. We immediately stopped to exchange some money at the border -- money exchanges are located on both sides of the border. From the border crossing to the train station, it's about 1/2 mile or 3/4 mile to the train station.
After crossing the bridge and passing through border control, the road ahead -- called Zahradnicka -- takes you to a commercial and residential district of central Komarno. A few hundred meters past the border checkpoint there is a small square ("Trznicne Nam.") where there is a city map and there is also a tourist office nearby. We used the map to get oriented with the town and find the train station. Continuing down Zahradnicka, we came upon the largest intersection in town and turned left onto Medercska toward the train station. After about 150 meters, take a right on Plynarenska and the station is about 50 meters away at the end of the street on a quiet traffic circle.
Upon entering the train station, we went straight to the ticket counter where we had some trouble getting our tickets. We easily conveyed that we were heading to Bratislava, but the friendly agent needed to know which station we wanted... after we finally figured out what she was asking, we had to pull out our Bratislava travel guide to ensure we arrived at the main station (Bratislava Hlavna stanica) and not Bratislava Nove Mesto station which is northeast of the old town, quite a hike from Bratislava's historic district.
Tickets in hand, we considered walking back into town for lunch, but time was short. We decided to try the smoky pub at the opposite end of the station from the ticket counter. We had a great little lunch (despite the language barrier) then we jumped on our train to Bratislava.
