The village is situated on the Danube plain (Podunajská nížina), on the left bank of the river Danube (Dunaj), 7 kilometers west of the town Štúrovo, near the state border with Hungary. It lies at an altitude of 107-222 meters above sea level.


The deforested area is part of a plain made up of alluvial deposits with gently undulating terrain, interspersed with watercourses. Towards the north there are gently rising terraces covered with loess. The northernmost part of the area flows smoothly into the southern slopes of the Belianske Hills (Belianske kopce). The area is mostly a plain, with marshy subsoil, in places saline black and brown earth.

The municipality has an area of 2,409 hectares. According to the last census in 2011, it has 1,178 inhabitants, 88 % of whom are of Hungarian and 10 % of Slovak nationality.


The favorably located municipality became independent from the town Štúrovo in 1999 and is once again looking for a new way of prosperity, deciding of her future on her own.


The artistic monuments of the village include the Roman Catholic church, which was built in 1730 - 1732 in Baroque style. In the local cemetery there is a chapel in Romanesque style, which was built in 1862.


The village has several sacral monuments, which were gradually built since 1778. The first stone cross dates back to 1764. The stone statues depict the following saints: Vendelín, the Guardian Angel, the Holy Trinity, Florián, Ján Nepomucký and Joseph. Next to the church is the Millennium Pillar. In front of the church a monument dedicated to the victims of the World War I and II was erected. Apart from these, there is a considerable number of statues in the village.
