The oldest documents of settlement date back to the Early Stone Age about 35,000 years ago, but the first written mention of the village is from 1275. The village consists of former independent villages Volkovce and Závada, which first merged in 1924 - 1931, definitively in 1945. Former majors Slance and Olichov are also part of the village. The most important monument of the village is the Roman Catholic, originally Gothic Church of St. Jakub, which underwent a Baroque reconstruction in the years 1750 to 1754. In 1926, a tower was erected, which houses a bell from 1923. Of the other sacral monuments, there are several divine flours, crosses and statues of the Virgin Mary, which were built by individual families in the village as a thank you for God's help and protection. The village also has several family dwellings with classic rural architecture from the beginning of the last century. However, the village also lives a rich cultural life. There are up to three artistic groups. The first is an amateur theater ensemble, in which children and adults work together. The ensemble has a tradition of more than ninety years, as its beginnings date back to 1927. The folklore group Volkovčanka and the church choir at the local church are dedicated to singing. On St. Jakuba, the patron saint of the municipal church, feast festivities are regularly held, which are extremely popular. Residents also have good opportunities for sports.
