Peresznye (Croatian: Prisika, German: Prössing) is a village in Vas (Eisenburg) county, Hungary, close to the border towards Austria which was drawn in 1921 according to the Treaty of Trianon. It is situated between Lutzmannsburg, Burgenland, Austria, and Csepreg, Hungary, appr. 10 km eastwards of the border town Köszeg (Güns), and inhabited mainly by Burgenland Croats.

Here the priest and writer József Ficzkó, publishing in the version of the Croatian language today called Burgenland Croatian, lived and worked in the 19th century. Ficzkó was praised for having contributed extraordinarily to the development of self-esteem and identity of the Burgenland Croats by using their language (which was not his mothertongue, as he was of Slovene origin) in writing.

The palace of Peresznye after World War I was the last residence of the former Austro-Hungarian foreign minister and supreme court master (Obersthofmeister) of the emperor, Count Leopold Berchtold, who owned the place and died here in 1942.
