The village of Čajkov is situated on the southern edge of the mountain range known as
Štiavnické vrchy. This smaller village with only 1055 inhabitants is located in the
District of Levice.
The earliest written reference of Čajkov dates from 1276. This lovely Slovak village
has always been known for the production of high quality wines and keeping old folklore
traditions and local culture alive. Several dancing and singing groups have been
established in the village over the past decades - many of them perform on regular
basis at the local festivals and fetes. The members of these groups wear
traditional costumes which are very colorful and unique.
The village is surrounded by woods - good opportunity for those who enjoy to get out
and do a bit of walking and exploring. There is a well known local footpath called
"Čajkovské bralie" which goes through some of the most interesting places
in the area.
