Komarom is a Danube River cruise port split between Hungary on the Danube's south bank in Komarom-Esztergom county and Slovakia on the other. The town covers a total area of approx 70,19 km2 (27,10 ml2) and has a population of around 19,750 people (2009 census).
- In 1763 the town was heavily damaged by Komarom earthquake.
- The city was formerly a separate suburban village named Ujszony. In 1892 Komarom and Ujszony were linked via an iron bridge. In 1896 both towns were united under the name Komarom.
- The center of Komarom was split by the newly Czechoslovakia's border in 1920 following Treaty of Trianon in which the country lost around 2⁄3 of its territory creating Hungarian minority in Slovakia. The Slovak (Czechoslovak) part is now Komarno, Slovakia.
- Komarom and Komarno are connected by a pair of bridges: the old iron bridge and a new lifting bridge. A 3rd bridge is scheduled, with the vast majority of funding from EU's Connecting Europe Facility.
- Komarom and Komarno used to be the border crossing between Czechoslovakia and Hungary, until the two countries became part of Schengen Area, resulting in customs and immigration checks being lifted on December 12, 2007.
