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