The story of Kukkonia

In popular culture, Kukkonia has been historically used to refer to Rye Island, a river island in southwest Slovakia. The name dates back to the time of the Tartar invasion when inhabitants developed a way of communication by imitating the croaking of the local fire-bellied toad to warn each other of approaching enemies.
