There is a place with a special name, Nevetlenfalu, on maps (you can also see it on Google Maps), which appears to us as a unique geographical interest, and the appellation boasts a fascinating legend. However, this place was first mentioned in 1360, and is still under the name Giacvalva.

The settlement is located exactly on the western side of the Avas Mountains, between Batar and Akli, near the Ukrainian-Romanian border. 85% of the local population still speaks Hungarian. But how did the village get the sudden name of being unknown?

It first appeared in 1619 under the name Nevetlenfalu, while it was previously known as Gyakfalva for several centuries. In the 17th and 18th centuries, both names were used at the same time, but in the second half of the 18th century, the name Nevitlenvalu became definitive. The reason for the name change is that the word “jiak” coincided with the word jiak, or sexual intercourse, and according to legends, this is the reason for the name change.
