Grenzfall Kittsee – the document by ORF online


The documentary by ORF about Kittsee (Slovak immigration, village planing, the changing conditions in the village on the border with Slovakia) can be viewed online (movie in German).

This is the documentary the Slovak boulevard responded to with a biased reaction. 

Kopčany – the other part of Kittsee


The original village of Kittsee used to be larger and reached as far as the present territory of Slovakia. After the border demarcation of 1919, only the western part lies further on Austrian territory. The eastern part became a part of the fifth district of Bratislava, Petržalka and carries the Slovak name Kopčany.
