During the summer and autumn of 1989, Pornóapáti was a popular transit point for refugees fleeing the socialist Central European countries, especially East Germany. Its location, far from official border crossing stations and surrounded on three sides by Austria made it a practical pedestrian escape route. Many automobiles were abandoned in the woods to the northeast.
Its been a popular tourism attraction for urban travellers since it contains "Porno" in its name. In addition, the word "Apáti" means "Abbey's", referring to a Cistercian Abbey found there. This gives the name of the village "Porno abbey's" meaning. The pronunciation of the title is quite homonym to an expression "porno party" as well.
