Neighbouring villages are: Kljajicevo, Conoplja, Stara Moravica, Gornja Rogatica and Sivac. Local community Bácsgyulafalva is organized on the territory of settled place Telecka and Jagnjevo farms – 6 km far away from the village. The village is founded in 1883 as Gyulafalva( Village of ......), later Bácsgyulafalva, but in 1922 it was called Telecka. Our ancestores were founded Telecka from 13 Banat΄s villages, but the biggest number of colonists is from settled place near Kikinda. In 2008 we celebrated 125 anniversary of village and 110 years from building the Roman-Catolic Church in Bácsgyulafalva. In the village there are: the local community which accomplishes communal works, net of the waterworks. In the same building is the local office.

POPULATION – On the last census in 2002 Bácsgyulafalva had 2.084 inhabitants (78% Hungarians). Until 1995 in the village were living about 99% Hungarians, without Jagnjevo farms. Jagnjevo kadastral belongs to Bácsgyulafalva, but Jagnjevo is far away from Kljajicevo about 2 km. Today Bácsgyulafalva has less than 2000 inhabitants. In 1930, the number of inhabitans was more 3500 people. The problem of Bácsgyulafalva is the same as in the other local communities, young people go to the bigger towns becuse they don΄t have a job in Bácsgyulafalva. Only people who work in agriculture stay in the village.

ECONOMY – THE MUSEUM OF TOBACCO – The main occupacion of inhibitants is farming, but few employed people travel to other towens because they work there. Bácsgyulafalva is famous for growing of Tobacco. Our ancestors brought this tradition from Banat. Growing of red pepper is the second agriculture which has a tradition in the village, but today, the biggest part of fields is maize. A villager Kovac Istvan opened the Museum of Tobacco in his house, a few years ago. Istvan collects special tools for growing and working of tobacco. The museum was moved away to special renowated house and The Museum of Handiscraft in 2009.
