The village is easily accessible from Komárno and Veľký Meder with suburban services. The nearest railway station is in Zemianska Olča, 6 km away. It was mentioned in 1216 for the first time as property of the Benedictine monastery of Pannonhalma. The abbot Stephen promoted the people of Trávnik for their loyal military service to the estate of the church aristocracy in 1383. The village became an independent yeoman seat to 1851.In the past the inhabitants lived off farming including cattle and horse raising. The closeness of Danube and smaller-larger lakes around the village endeared fishing with the locals. Characteristic was also gold-washing from the Danube. The natural setting around the Danube is wonderful. A remarkable peat bog with protected plant species is situated north of the village.
