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.
