The local forest is one of the unique features of Veľký Meder. It is
located directly in the town and makes up a third of its entire territory. The
captivating gravel pit near the town also calls for long wals.
For fans of history awaits here. They find it in the historical Local
heritage house, which reflects the way of life of the peasant from the end of
the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century. It was declared a national
cultural monument of the Slovak Republic in 2021. The local symbol – the
more than 500-year old oak of King Matthias Corvinus is an obligatory tourist
stop. There is an interesting legend about the huge tree. The well-known monarch
allegedly tied his horse to the trunk on the occasion of granting town
privileges. The Roman Catholic Church of St. Nicholas from 1900 and the chapel
of Our Lady of Sorrows from 1910 are definitely worth a visit.

monuments and a memorial of the Hungarian composer Béla Bartók.

90 degrees spring every second from a 2,5-kilometre well. Thanks to the
geothermal well, residents have some of the lowest heat prices in Slovakia.
There is no need to travel to distant countries for beautiful holiday
experiences. Veľký Meder, a modern town with attractions, treasures and
visions, is the best proof.
