Kán - the revival of an abandoned village
Kán is a settlement formed at the junction of the Mecsek and the Zselic, in a valley running north-south. The village is surrounded on all sides by woods, and is a one-street village, making it geographically isolated from traffic. The Swabian village dates back to the 12th century, but has been depopulated several times in its history.
After the Second World War, following the German expulsions, the inhabitants left the village and in 1978 Kán ceased to exist as an independent municipality, and a year later it was annexed to the village of Hetvehely.
