We also have many small towns and villages in the surrounding steep areas , as well as small farms and many trees.
We enjoy much natural beauty but we have problems with water management. Rain falling on the streets in our towns commonly flows into storm drains
and then directly into our rivers. This is not good for the land or the rivers.

There have been some successes at repairing the damage from the flood but it is very expensive. Out of Slovakia and other nations has emerged a model
for reducing natural disasters through rainwater retention.
