In the first half of the last century, the village grew steadily and reached the high point in 1946 with 659 inhabitants. Afterwards the migration to the cities began and many people emigrated to South Africa and Australia. In 2001, the low point was reached with just 158 inhabitants. Today, the population is again just over 200. The influx of foreigners from England and Germany also contributes to the increase.
