Chorvátsky Grob was first mentioned as Monar in 1214 and was then known for making jewelry. After the Mongol invasion in 1241, part of the population emigrated and Monar was hardly inhabited in the 14th century. Some of the abandoned courtyards were taken by German "guests"; The name Aysgruab has been handed down from this time .

The eponymous Croats came from the area between Sisak and Hrvatska Kostajnica around 1550 , as they fled from the troops of the expanding Ottoman Empire . For example, the Count Illésházy had Croatian colonists settle. The immigrant inhabitants were employed as farmers and winemakers, on the other hand they were also wood cutters, painters and stickers. The Croatian language dominated until the 20th century.

In the 2001 census, however, only 10 of the 1587 inhabitants declared themselves Croatians, but 1546 declared themselves Slovaks. Since the year 2000, the community has seen rapid population growth. The majority of this is accounted for by numerous new residential buildings, especially in the Čierna Voda district; thus Chorvátsky Grob becomes a suburb of Bratislava.


According to the 2011 census, Chorvátsky Grob had 3789 inhabitants, including 3526 Slovaks , 34 Magyars , 31 Croatians , 26 Czechs , eight Germans and five Poles . 38 residents indicated a different ethnic group and 121 residents gave no information about the ethnic group .

2,327 residents supported the Roman Catholic Church, 122 residents to the Evangelical Church AB, 24 residents to the Greek Catholic Church, 15 residents to the Orthodox Church, 14 residents to the Reformed Church, 10 residents to the Brethren Church, nine residents each to the Baptists and to the Pentecostal Movement and five residents to Jehovah's Witnesses; a total of 45 residents professed a different denomination. 945 inhabitants were without a denomination and the denomination was not determined for 264 inhabitants.
