Nové Zámky (Érsekújvár in Hungarian) is the largest town of the Podunajsko region.

The town was founded in the 16th C. when four villages merged and built fortifications on either side of the Nitra river.

In 1663 the Turks overrun the fortifications and occupied the town for the next 22 years.

The fort was destroyed by King Charles III in 1724.

The streets are still laid out in the hexagonal form of the bastions.

There's a beautiful Calvary on the site of one of the bastions from 1779.

There are many monuments, old buildings and many other attractions.

Hui Chin and I had a very good time exploring and getting lost in the town.
