Komárom-Esztergom is an administrative Hungarian county in Transdanubia, on the northern border with Slovakia. It shares borders with the Hungarian counties of Győr-Moson-Sopron, Veszprém, Fejér and Pest. Its county seat is Tatabánya.

History

After World War I and the break-up of empires, the Hungarian Soviet Republic came to power in 1919, followed quickly by the Kingdom of Hungary. Komárom-Esztergom was created from the Hungarian parts of the pre-1918 counties Komárom and Esztergom, formerly part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

The pre-1918 situation was temporarily restored during World War II. Between 1950 and 1990, during the Communist regime, the county was called Komárom. Since the establishment of Hungary, it was named Komárom-Esztergom to refer to its historic past.

Regional structure

The county is ranked second in terms of population density among counties in Hungary: 66% of people live in towns.
