The first known record of the village is in a charter of 1323. In the following centuries it was known as Vatha, Woytha, Watha, and Bata. From 1475 the settlement was recorded as Alsóvatta ("Lower Vatta") and Felsővatta ("Upper Vatta"), which indicates that there were two distinct and separate settlements. These combined later.
During the Ottoman rule of the 16th Century, the village was razed and the inhabitants had to flee several times.
