A valuable technical monument – the steam repumping station exists between the communes Patince and Virt, not far away from the mouth of the river Stará Žitava in the south of Slovakia close to the Slovak-Hungarian frontier.
Repeated floods both on the rivers Danube and Stará Žitava in the south of Slovakia led to the construction of the repumping station in 1897.
The steam repumping station consists of a pump, independently standing chimney, coal store and a structure with regulators. This distinct dominant of the environs of the Danube near Komárno has got a well-preserved contemporary technical equipment.
