Šenkvice is a village and municipality in western Slovakia in Pezinok District in the Bratislava region. The town of roughly 4400 people lies east of Pezinok and south of Modra, and is connected to each via a main road. Another road connects Šenkvice to Blatné, which lies about five kilometers south-east. Šenkvice is said to be the largest Slovak municipality without a city status.Name and etymologyThe name derives from a Slavic personal name Čaník . The German colonists adopted the Slovak name as Sankawych, Sankavich and finally as Schenkowitz, Schenkwitz. In the 16th century, the village was abandoned and resettled by the Croatians who adopted the German name and changed it to Šenkvice. This became also the Slovak name.HistoryEarly settlements from the Neolithic and Bronze Age were found in the town, as well as signs of human activity during Ancient Roman times.The first written record of the village can be found in a letter by the Hungarian king Béla IV from 1256. The town was burned down during the Mongol invasion. Soon, the area was resettled by German settlers. In 1547 the village has experienced an influx of Croatians, who were fleeing from the advancing Ottoman Empire. More Croatians from the town of Hrvatska Kostajnica came in 1594 and founded a small settlement nearby, originally called Small Šenkvice. Later, it merged into Šenkvice. In 1682, the town has built fortifications around the Church of Saint Anne, where the inhabitants hid during Ottoman incursions.
