Bočiar is a village located in the southern part of the Košická Kotlina basin, near Slovakia’s largest steelworks. The area of Bočiar was colonized as early as in the Neolithic Era. Evidence of Roman colonization has been found here, as well as that of a Slavonic settlement. The first written record of the village comes from 1249 when it was a part of Nový Hrad castle. There is also a record of a church in this village from the 14th century. In the second half of the 20th century Bočiar was under the administration of the Hutníky village, today called Sokoľany. At present, it is one of smaller villages of the Abov region with developed infrastructure and facilities. One of the oldest buildings in the village is the Roman-Catholic Kostol sv. Imricha (Saint Emeric Church). Originally a Gothic church built at the turn of the 13th and 14th century, the building was reconstructed probably around the 18th century in Classical style. The community centre building comes from the second half of the 20th century. There is a multifunctional sports facility in the village and a playground. The development of the village was blocked by the construction prohibition due to the construction of a metallurgy facility in the 1960s and a part of Bočiar cadastral territory was separated in 1979 to be administered by Košice. The construction prohibition was revoked in 1991, fortunately for the village. However, the lost territory still hasn’t been returned to Bočiar.
