Partners of the project
The municipality of Veľké Úľany is a larger rural village with a location in the district of Galanta. In terms of competencies, it is a local authority, it manages its territory and provides its citizens with public services. The municipality is a nationally mixed village with a large Hungarian community. Veľké Úľany has a long-established partnership with the Hungarian city of Jánossomorja. Local governments meet regularly and have a common project background. From the geographic point of view the village is located near the Black Water and the Little Danube rivers. These two rivers have determined the area of the village from the past. In the floodplain of both rivers remained remains of gravel pit, which are the subject of mining at the village. At the same time, there are remains of deciduous floodplain forests forming a forest park near the village. The village takes care of this park and uses it fully.
