Existing ethnicities:

Croats from Bátya came to that area in 16th century from Croatian northeastern region of Slavonia. They speak Štokavian dialect of Croatian language, a Slavonian subdialect (Old-Shtokavian with non-reflected yat pronunciation). Similar dialectal features are seen today among population of Gradište near Županja and around Našice.

These Croats belong to special group of Danubian Croats: they call themselves as Raci. In literature they are also called racki Hrvati.[1]

Bátya Croats' feast is Veliko racko prelo.[2]
