Bosniaks (Croatian: Bošnjaci, singular Bošnjak; Hungarian: Bosnyákok, in Hungarian literature also Baranyai bosnyákok) are a Croat population, living in various settlements in the historic region Baranja, in its Hungarian part. Bosniaks Croats should not be confused with Bosnian Muslims that mostly live in Bosnia and Herzegovina also called Bosniaks.

Geographical distributions[edit]

They live in Baranya, in the city of Pécs,[1][2][3][4][5][6] also in the villages Kökény, Szemely,[7] Udvar,[8] u Szalánta (they came there in the 18th century; today they make 32% of the village population) , Pécsudvard,[9] Németi, Pogány.[10] i t.d.. Until recently, Bosniak Catholics were the significant community in Áta, Szőke and Szőkéd, but those Croats have significantly magyarized.
