Vasszécseny is a village in Vas county, Hungary.

It has two castles. The older of the two is known as the old castle and the newer one is known as the new castle.

Vasszécseny is impossible to spell or remember. A useful trick for finding it in Google maps, is to centre the map roughly over Hungary and start typing 'vasectomy'.

When people from Budapest want to eat venison, they drive towards Vasszécseny and hope to hit a deer with their car.

There are more pigs living in Vasszécseny than there are people. Or maybe it is chickens.

Vasszécseny has a low overall crime rate. The major type of delinquency is misuse of wastepaper baskets. The council installed 1 wastepaper basket for every 200m of street. They then lacked the funds to replace the waste sacks. Local vandals have therefore taken to planting flowers in the wastepaper baskets.
