History 

During the Tartar invasion, the population of the whole village was almost extinct.

It was owned by the Kanizsaians in 1274, and is mentioned as a market town in late 15th-century charters. In 1535 it became the property of Tamás Nádasdy. Its development was hampered by Turkish attacks. Protestants massed in its old church from the late 16th century until 1660 ; then it was destroyed by the Turks. The church built in its place burned down in 1722, “the coffins in the crypt also burned its altars burned, the bells melted . ” The original of the church that still stands today was erected in 1725; the neo-baroque part was added in 1935.

The Fertőszentmiklós – Nezsider railway line was built in 1897 .
