Počúvadlo Lake It is the largest as well one of the most beautiful and popular water reservoirs. The peak of the legendary hill of Sitno can be reached from its banks within 1.5 hour. It is a suitable place for swimming with children with local farmer mini-zoo, boat rental, places to eat or stay for a night. Although the lake is frequently visited, it has managed to preserve its beauty and romantic allure.It is the only reservoir with five dams, the main dam having been the one with the highest altitude in Europe until the 19th century.
