Its first written record dates back to the beginning of the 13th century. According to traditions its name was 'Rákfalva’ (Crab village), which referred to the crabbers living here sometime. The name of Ragendorf created by German settlers derives from it. The village was also entitled to hold fairs but its flourishing was ended by the world wars. However positive effects of being a frontier settlement have been increasing recently.

The most remarkable sight of the village is the Roman-Catholic church. Its tower was built in the 13th century on the ruins of a Roman-age watch tower. In front of the church there is a Calvary built in Baroque style. The Zichy-mansion is a late Baroque monument. The Lutheran church obtained its present form in the 18th century. In the vicinity of the village a statue-park can be found. The settlement is a popular starting-point of water tours on the Danube.
