The small village of Hernádbűd is located in the middle part of the Hernád Valley, in the northeastern area of the county Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén. It was permanently dwelt as early as the prehistoric times. In the Árpádian age (11-13th centuries) it was the possession of the Aba clan.

The still existing Romanesque church was built in this period. The village does not have a railway station. The nearest one at Ináncs is accessible by bus from here. The town that is located nearest to Hernádbűd is Encs, which is also the seat of the district notary. The decline in the number of Hernádbűd's inhabitants stopped a few years ago. In recent years the village has witnessed considerable development, marked by the construction of the water pipe system, the telephone network and the gas pipeline. Communal solid waste is also disposed of safely. Local retail trade is done by a COOP shop. There is no economic organisation of legal entity based in the settlement. The number of inhabitants is 163, thirty-five per cent of whom are over 60 years of age. Thirty per cent of those in working age are unemployed. The village does not have a system of institutions that would cater for fundamental provision; the only local institution is the library of 2,000 volumes.
