Since Bkfrd? is only a few kilometer away from Sopron, its history was always in close connection with the history of the town.

The settlement here became slowly the property of those castle-serfs, who got the privileges of the nobles for their service. These people became members of the lower nobility, but soon some of them rose above the others, like the Fels?bki Nagy family. They for example became the owner of great lands in western Hungary, and plaid an important role in the political life not of Sopron and its surround, but also the whole country.

In the 19C after some develops and that the railway was laid down, more and more people settled here. The three settlements around Sopron were united into one at the beginning of the 20C. From this time the name of the settlement was Bkfrd?. Nowadays it is an important tourist and healing centre near Sopron.
