Gabčíkovo, originally Beš (Hungarian: Bes) has 4910 inhabitants (94.0%
Hungarian, 1990 census). It was first mentioned in 1248. Here is the Gabčíkovo
Dam in the Danube. Bős has got its Czechoslovakian name after Jozef Gabčík
(1912-1942, who was one of the killers of R. Heydrich in Prague in 1942)
- but the commonly used name is Bős.
