It lies under the Little Carpathians, 11 km east from Malacky. Nearby the village Vysoká peak (754m) towers, that is one of the highest Carpathian peaks. In the surroundings of the village there are two water reservoirs, Vývrat with the originally hunting manor and Kuchyňa. The first written reference to this village dates back to 1206 as Cuhnamezej. In the time of the first written reference it used to be part of the Bratislava castle, later it belonged to earls from Svätý Jur and Pezinok and from the 16th century it was part of the Plavecký barony. From the original Chuhna (1238), Cohnha (1244) and Kuhna (1291) the name was settled down on Kuchyňa (Kuchel in German). In the 18th and 19th century it was a famous jar making centre.
