Levice fishponds by the Perec stream were declared a preserved area in 1974. The area occupies 91,83 hectars and directly interlocks the town residential area of Levice. This significant avifauna area was shaped from 1950 – 1956 as a system of artificial fishponds. Geological underlayer is formed by alluvial silts of the river Hron (gravel and sand). The banks of the ponds are lined by vegetation of alders, poplars and willow trees. Stems, hyssop loosestrife, meadow saffron and bur – reed form the majotity of the growth of water vegetation. The flora of water vegetation provides water fowl a good protection, which live here all the year round or stay here during its migrations.
