Flag and Coat of Arms of Lukavica are on this website. Hronský Beňadik village lies between southern parts of mountain area Pohronský Inovec and Štiavnické vrchy and river Hron. It is one of the historical crossroads connecting Pohronie with Ponitrie, the southern region with western area. It is rich in high-quality soil, wineyards and rare metal materials. Its geographical position was very important in the past.
The first writen reference comes from 1075 when the main church was built by King Gejza I. He also donated large quantity of fertile land, wineyards, meadows, rivers and ponds to this area. There is proof that the first inhabitans of this area lived there already in antiquity. Lots of stone tools and primitive ceramics were found there too. There is an important archaeological site
