Church of St John of Nepomuk

The church dedicated to the patron saint of those who travel on or live by the water was built in 1775 (or 1812, according to another source). The Remete congregation functioned as a subsidiary of the Püski parish for centuries, part of the Esztergom Diocese. From 1993, it belonged to the Diocese of Győr. The tiny village boasted an important harbour, which was closed by the 1992 diversion of the Danube. You can cross over to Slovakia, to Gabčíkovo on Žitný ostrov (Great Rye Island), by the ferry which departs from next to the ferry house. There is a park and campground near the ferry as well as a metal statute entitled the “Danube boatman”.
