KOMÁRNO and the region along the Danube River may be of interest to Japanese tourists who visit the nearby cities of Bratislava, Vienna and Budapest in large numbers. To make the city and the region better known, Japanese Ambassador Akira Takamatsu has promised to send more information about its local attractions back to his home country.

Ambassador Takamatsu visited Komárno in mid July. There he met Komárno’s mayor, Anton Marek, and other city representatives. Together they discussed topical questions concerning the Komárno region, the local economy, the situation on the local labour market, tourism opportunities, the co-existence of Slovaks and Hungarians in what is a mixed area, and the prospects for cross-border cooperation, among other things, the TASR newswire wrote.

Topic: Foreigners in Slovakia
