The territory of the Tekov region begins in the vast fertile lowlands of southern western Slovakia and ends at the foot of the Štiavnica Hills in numerous vineyards that give the region its distinctive character. The river Hron flows through the Tekov region, which largely contributes to its character.
The Tekov region is also referred to as the „ čilejkársky“ or „čilejkárskym“ due to the fact that in some areas of this region it is used a specific soft central slovak dialect.
But what is this region specifically renowed for? The Tekov region is known mainly for its traditional culture and unique traditions, which are still visible in most villages to this day. In the past, the inhabitants were mostly farmers who used excellent natural conditions for agriculture in the Hron wold and on the floodplains of the rivers Hron and Žitava. At that time, the peasants grew mainly wheat, barley, rye, oats, potatoes, corn and sugar beet. In addition to agriculture the Tekov region, was known for grapes and wine-making, especially between the town of Levice and the village of Hronský Beňadik, where there was an important wine-making area, which still exists today.

Plenty of cultivated crops allowed people living in the region to develop livestock production at the same time, poultry and pig breeding was the largest, as was usually the case in the past. In addition to poultry and pigs, they also had cattle, which were a daily source of milk and milk products, as well as a source of meat and traction.
