Simon- Juda Market Sturovo (2016)
6th of October – 9th of October in 2016
In 1724 the settlement was promoted to town status with the rights to hold markets. King Charles IV awarded the town market rights and the most significant was the Simon – Juda market, held on the days of St. Simon and St. Jude.
This traditional market continues to be held annually even today. After the establishment of Czechoslovakia in 1918 the city of Párkány, formerly an in-land city of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, became a Czechoslovakian border city. The change of the name from Párkány to Štúrovo occurred in 1948.
Sturovo has a population of 11.100 inhabitants, and is situated on the left bank of the Dunaj / Danube river at the Slovak-Hungarian border. Štúrovo is the southern most city in Slovakia attracting a lot of visitors with its interesting countryside.
The Bend of the Danube river starts here with a splendid view of the Basilica in Esztergom, Hungary. The river Hron flows into the Danube close to the city and offers excellent opportunities for adventure and exploration for nature lovers.
The city is famous for its tolerance where throughout the centuries people of different nationalities and religions have lived together in peaceful harmony. This diversity gives the city a special atmosphere and flavour. I am certain that during your stay in our city you will have a wonderful time here, and that the people of Štúrovo will show you warm-heartedness and hospitality.
