The Gabčíkovo Waterworks was built in 1977-1992 mainly for reasons of flood protection, improving navigation conditions, ensuring drinking water quality and electricity production. However, recreational and tourist use was also significantly considered.

It is a water work on the second longest European river, on the Danube River. The water tower is dominated by a surveillance tower whose silhouette is visible from a distance. In the lower part, there is a viewing platform that allows visitors a perfect view. When the weather is good, you can also use a telescope to see the Kamzík TV Tower.

The natural beauty of the Danube and the surrounding towns can be explored, for example, during sightseeing cruises by passenger boat, either from Gabčíkovo - port or from Bratislava.

Cycling enthusiasts can make a round cycling trip around the Gabčíkovo waterworks, which traditionally starts and ends in the capital city. The cycling trail is approximately 100 km long and runs along an asphalt road.

Worth mentioning is also the island between the old riverbed of the Danube and the inlet and outlet channels of the water work, on which three municipalities lie. One of them is the village of Vojka, in which the ferry is operated in the summer. The island is rugged with magnificent flora and the banks of the old Danube river are sought-after stop of canoeists throughout the year.
