Within easy reach of the Little Carpathian mountain range, it is one of the warmest and driest regions of Slovakia, with a rich wine-making tradition that includes sparkling wine produced using traditional champagne techniques. The town is also renowned for its cookies, biscuits, wafers and, river rafting for the more fitness conscious. Other attractions include the Esterházy castle.
