There are many wine regions in Slovakia from east (Tokaj) to west (Záhorie), with viniculture being a key part of folklore. Nitra is a city with long winery tradition and collects grapes from vineyards under Zobor and elsewhere along the Carpathian ridge.

Karol Pongrácz combined in his work influences of Impressionism, Luminism and the Barbizon school of painting. Pongrácz's art has also important documentary value in preserving the important dominants and urban areas of Nitra and other Slovak towns.
