The baroque-style church is opposit the Danube Museum. Actually, this is the second church, since the first one collapsed, but that time the construction of the second one was already in progress. Most of the buildings in Komarno had two major disasters. First, an earthquake, and later a fire. St Andrew was even unluckier than the others since. First, the walls were nearly weakened, cracked, and to a certain extent fallen, due to significant construction defects. The church was rebuilt, with more success now, and the interior frescoed. I 1763, an earthquake did colossal damage. The towers and the roof collapsed, the frescoes were severely damaged. Rebuilt again, but from the next great earthquake in 1873, it was ruined again. That time I would give it up, but not the people of Komarno. They rebuilt this unlucky church again asked the Vatican to let the bells ring at 3 o'clock every day, as a reminder of the earthquake. Benedictine Chief Abbot approved the request. After every disaster due to the rebuilt, the towers were getting smaller and smaller. Despite that changes, with its two, still tall towers, now St Andrew is part of the cityscape.
