Far and far are Drahovce known lakes, which were formed after the extraction of gravel. There are eight of them in the vicinity of the village, they are a paradise for fishermen and on hot summer days a place of pleasant cooling. Drahov people have water to distribute. The village lies on the right bank of the Váh and includes part of the Sĺňava reservoir. The inhabitants of Drahoviec are grateful to their predecessors for choosing this flat, fertile piece of land. It provides them with work and a pleasant living environment. Today it flows peacefully, but the ancestors experienced hard times. Turkish swords and daggers have been dug up as evidence of the Ottoman devastation. Archaeological discoveries have confirmed life at this place since the Early Stone Age - the Paleolithic. Bones of prehistoric animals were found during the extraction of gravel. Reindeer antlers and a mammoth tooth are stored in the Balneological Museum in Piešťany. With more than two and a half thousand inhabitants, Drahovce is one of the largest municipalities in the Piešťany district. They include the local part of Voderada and Majer Jozefov dvor. However, people from Drahov live not only on work, they are active in various hobby, sports and educational activities. Examples are fishermen, gardeners, beekeepers and others. Since 1882, there has been a voluntary fire brigade in the village. The citizens' free time is enriched by football players, Drahovčanka wind music and the folklore singing group Kolovrátok. The Dobreta Theater reminds everyone of the original name of the village. It is first mentioned by Dobreta in a document from 1113.
