THE VILLAGE of Mást lies in the Záhorie region, close to Bratislava. It was settled by Croatians, who breathed new life into it after it was conquered by the Ottomans in the 16th century.

Nowadays, Mást is part of the town of Stupava, but has fallen victim to endless disputes over its border.

Mást was usually at a disadvantage in these disputes, probably because many state officials lived in Stupava. The inhabitants of Mást, who were known for growing cabbage, turned to Emperor Josef II for assistance, but the outcome remains unknown.

This unique postcard showing Mást in two pictures dates back to 1919
