Courtyard of Europe in Komárno
The buildings in the new square with a surface of 6,500 m² (7,774 yd²) are stylistically designed and they represent historical architecture typical for particular parts of Europe.
The splendid historical center of Komárno, a town situated in the south of Slovakia, on the bank of the river Danube, and the Courtyard of Europe are linked by entrance gates: the Gate of St. Stephen, the Gate of Belo IV and the Gate of Maria Theresa.
The gate of Matthias I opens from the side of the inner park of the Zichy Palace. Mathew I was the best-known king in our history, who was closely emotionally connected with the town of Komárno. This gate is one of the landmarks of the courtyard. With its shape and colors, it reminds the buildings built during the reign of Matthias I.
In the middle of the square stands a functional copy of the original well which used to stand in the main square, in front of the Town Hall until 1878.
