Are there more Slovenes living there? I think it's quite clear which names are Slovenian and which are Hungarian.

There are approximately 3000-5000 Slovenes living in Hungary. In the 2001 census 503 people identified themselves as Slovenes in Szentgotthárd (5.56% of the town's total population) and 552 spoke Slovene as their mother tongue. As for the whole Vas county 1706 people identified themselves as Slovenes (0.89% of the county's total population) and 1768 spoke Slovene as their mother tongue.

Szentgotthárd/Monošter itself doesn't have many Slovenes, but the sign stands in Kétvölgy/Verica-Ritkarovci, if I'm not mistaken, where 79% of the population is Slovenian and 71% speak Slovenian as their mother tongue, maybe that's why they put Monošter first. PS: the Vas county lost a third of its population in just 11 years!

Yes, Apátistvánfalva/Števanovci (or Štivanovca) and Felsőszölnök/Gornji Senik and Kétvölgy/Verica-Ritkarovci are the three villages of Hungary with a Slovene majority. Szentgotthárd/Monošter is the cultural center of the Hungarian Slovenes and there is a Slovenian Consulate there.

I double checked and there is an error in the document. The total population of Vas county was 268 653 in 2001 and ~ 257 000 in 2012. Sorry for the mistake.

On a sidenote just two days ago the road connecting Felsőszölnök/Gornji Senik with Kétvölgy/Verica-Ritkarovci was ingurated by the PMs of Slovenia and Hungary which reduces the travelling distance between the two villages from 25 km to 5 km. It has been announced that 6 additional border crossings will be opened between the two countries in the next six years.

Ok, that sounds much better! (although not ideal)

Talking about the Vas County (vas means iron): has anyone noticed there used to be the Iron Curtain on the western border of the Iron County?

My mistake. I've found it on Google Street View:

Use of Arial font made me suspicious, because Italy uses different font on traffic signs.

Just to be thorough, the alternate language is Albanian, not Sicilian.
