Approximately 7 km (4½ miles)
I walked through Komárom, visiting the Reformed Church, then crossed the Danube River on Erszébet Híd/Alžbetin Most (named “Elizabeth Bridge” in both the Hungarian and Slovak languages).
By crossing the Danube I had passed back into Slovensko [Slovakia], in the Nitriansky kraj [Nitra Region], into the town of Komárno. Here I visited a Synagogue, two Churches, a Basilica and a Chapel.
I later visited Nádvorie Európy [“Europe Place”], which is a courtyard where the buildings are designed to represent the styles of various European countries, in a celebration of Unity in Diversity.
In the evening I met my friend Baz from Yorkshire, U.K.
Thank you to Helena and Ladislav for providing food and Baz for joining the pilgrimage.
