The village was first recorded in 1138 as Kywrth in 1252 as Kurth and Kyrth which refers to the ancient Hungarian tribe 'Kürt'. 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, Czechoslovak 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, Czechoslovak administration returned and the village became officially part of Czechoslovakia in 1947.
Its original Slovak name was created in 1927 as Kerty, but the village was renamed by the authorities in 1948 to the current official name.
