Need assistance in preventing duplicate URLs for articles

Hello, please can anybody help me?

I read every forum thread about Joomla duplicity here (creating hidding menu items and so on) but I dont really understand it. And my site has a tons of duplicity.
To example:
https://www.parfumylacno.sk/vyber-parfu ... pre-matusa
https://www.parfumylacno.sk/clanky/25-p ... pre-matusa
https://www.parfumylacno.sk/vyber-parfu ... pre-matusa
...

every URL from this show one article 510-parfemy-lacno-pre-matusa

When I create hidden menu item to this article i only create a new duplicity url and all old duplicity url still works = how can i disable all duplicity and remain only ONE GOOD URL?

Is only way to use httacces redirect - which seems to be imposible with many articles, where every article has at least 4-6 duplicate variants..:

Redirect 301 /clanky/25-parfum-na-meniny/510-parfemy-lacno-pre-matusa https://www.parfumylacno.sk/vyber-parfu ... pre-matusa
Redirect 301 /vyber-parfumu-a-vone/parfum-na-meniny/510-parfemy-lacno-pre-matusa https://www.parfumylacno.sk/vyber-parfu ... pre-matusa

Please can anyone explain to me and make me clear to how remove, redirect and avoid creating duplicity url in my Joomla site at all?

For now - i dont have a menu item for every article and category - but i have no idea how to make it in correct way - because every time when I create a menu item for some category or article => it s only caused a new duplicity url and all old duplicity url still works...

Thank you very much

Thank you, I tried extension kill duplicate but it makes more mishmash in url.. luckily i tried it only on developer web version.

I think that best solution would be make it redirect in htacces file.
