Felsőszölnök

Felsőszölnök (Slovene: Gornji Senik, German: Oberzemming, Latin: Zelnuk Superior) is a village in Vas County, Hungary. It is the westernmost point of Hungary, and lies on the borders with Slovenia and Austria.

Location[edit]

The nearest settlements are Oberdrosen in Jennersdorf, Burgenland to the northwest, and Neradnovci in the Municipality of Gornji Petrovci, Slovenia to the south.

Culture[edit]

The Alliance of Hungarian Slovenes has its seat in Felsőszölnök, there is a preschool with education in Slovene, and Slovene is taught in the primary school.[1]

The Martinje-Felsőszölnök border crossing between Hungary and Slovenia was opened in 1992, resulting in more frequent contacts between the districts in the neighbouring countries.[2]
