History

The first inhabitants of this land were some Turk people, in the 10C. The first source which mentioned the name of the town dates back to the 15C. In this century, the inhabitants of Balmaz had some legal fights with the neighboring settlement Hímes. After a small battle between the two settlements, the inhabitants of Balmaz captured the land of Hímes, which was a better agricultural land then Balmaz. Soon it became an oppidium, which means a small town with some privileges. Unfortunately it had lost these privileges in the 18C, and after became a poor and scheduled land. Peter Veres wrote a great sociological work about the problems of the peasants in this area in the 20C.
