Kisvárda is a town in Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg county, in the Northern Great Plain region of eastern Hungary near the border of Slovakia and Ukraine. It is the 3rd largest town in Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg after Nyíregyháza and Mátészalka with a population of 16 669 people. The Subregion of Kisvárda lies between two large landscapes, the Nyírség and the Rétköz. Kisvárda is just 22km from the border of Ukraine, 30km from Slovakia, 43.9km from Nyíregyháza, 50km from Ungvár (Uzhorod), 52.1km from Beregszász (Berehove), 52.9km from Sátoraljaújhely and 80km from Dorolţ, Romania.EtymologyThe name of the town, which means "little castle" in Hungarian., dates back to the Conquest of Hungary. The conquering Hungarians named the town for its earthwork. In the Middle Ages, it occurred like Warda and Warada in documents. The "kis" (meaning little) word part was added to differentiate the town from Nagyvárad (now Oradea, Romania) with "nagy" (meaning great or large).
