Levice is located in Levice, E of Nitra, 4813 1836, 68.4 miles E of Bratislava.

The suburban rural (agricultural) hillside cemetery is isolated. Reached by turning directly off a public road, access is open to all via a masonry wall, broken fence, and locking gate. Present size of the cemetery is 80x300 meters. 500-5000 19th-20th century marble, granite, and sandstone flat shaped tombstones in original locations are finely smoothed and inscribed stones, or multi-stone monuments with Hebrew, German, Slovakian, and Hungarian inscriptions. Some have carved relief decorations. The cemetery is divided into separate sections for men and women who have died in childbirth. The cemetery contains special memorial monuments for Holocaust victims. Within the cemetery are a pre-burial house and a well. The local Jewish community owns the property used for Jewish cemetery only. Adjacent properties are agricultural. Private visitors visit frequently. A regular caretaker cleared vegetation. No threats.
