Orechová Potôň (Hungarian: Diósförgepatony, Hungarian pronunciation: [ˈdioːʃførɡɛpɒtoɲ]) is a village and municipality in the Dunajská Streda District in the Trnava Region of south-west Slovakia.

History

In historical records the village was first mentioned in 1250. Until the end of World War I, it was part of Hungary and fell within the Dunaszerdahely district of Pozsony County. After the Austro-Hungarian army disintegrated in November 1918, Czechoslovakian troops occupied the area. After the Treaty of Trianon of 1920, the village became officially part of Czechoslovakia. In November 1938, the First Vienna Award granted the area to Hungary and it was held by Hungary until 1945. After Soviet occupation in 1945, Czechoslovakian administration returned and the village became officially part of Czechoslovakia in 1947.

Geography

The municipality lies at an altitude of 120 metres and covers an area of 21.069 km². It has a population of about 1,732 people. According to the census of 2001, the village had a population of 1,671, from which 1,573 were Hungarians and 99 Slovaks.
