Záhorská Ves

Záhorská Ves

Záhorská Ves is a village located in the westernmost corner of Slovakia. The first written reference to this village dates back to 1301. The village used to be an important Ugrain border area of and thanks to its wooden bridge over the Morava river that was situated here until 1945, it enabled a connection of Záhorie and Vienna. The inhabitants of Záhorská Ves are sometimes called “Uhrané” due to a previous name of the village – Uhorská Ves. A baroque church used be situated here, but it fell down and in 1940 a new church was built. Since 2001 there has been a customs office in the village and the Morava river can be crossed by a ferry going to the Austrian village Angern lying opposite Záhorská Ves. The ferry does not operate when the water level is high and the working time of the ferry is from 5.00-22.00. Building this border crossing dramatically improved a connection between Záhorie and neighbouring Austria. The village is connected by railway with Zohor where you can change to a train going to Bratislava. The Moravia Cycle Route passes through the village. On the south from the village there is the conservation area Horný les with well-preserved floodplain forest, lakes and dead stream branches. A very famous native of the village is Lucia Poppová, a world known opera singer.
