       "The history of our settlement began before Christ: it was an area suitable for settling down. It was rebuilt after the Turkish Subjection in 1734. It is a settlement where Hungarian, Croatian and German people live in peace together. Most of the inhabitants are Roman Catholic. Every minority preserves their own roots, identity and culture. It is a clean, tidied and attractive village. The stranger is welcomed when he arrives to our settlement. Its church was consecrated in 1783. The primary school and the kindergarden serve for education."
