About the village
Origin of the name „Bogács”
It is believed that the name of the settlement originates from the ancient Slavic word bogatu meaning rich, wealthy. The first written record mentions it as Bagach in 1248.
The surrounding villages are also imputed to Slavic origin. Szomolya derives from Slavic szmola = pitch, Cserépvár comes from the surrounding crocks (crepu)
