Written records cover 900 years of the settlement’s history, but the earliest phase of the history of the village remains obscure. Historically the land and the people of the village of Lázi almost uninterruptedly belonged to the Abbey of Pannonhalma. Throughout the settlement’s history the most significant characteristic features of Lázi’s inhabitants always were vitality and life force The village was burnt down by the Turkish invaders on three occasions and spontaneous great fires also devastated it, still, Lázi was always rebuilt by its inhabitants.

There were times when Lázi was considered a significant settlement compared with its neighbouring villages. The communist period in the settlement’s history did not bring much progress. There were no employment possibilities in the neighbourhood and the working age inhabitants left the village. Lázi was an aging settlement in this period. It is still not an attractive place for the younger generations

Lázi is part of the geographical region of Bakonyalja. Its soil as well as its hill slopes make it a suitable place for agriculture, especially for growing vine and fruits. Agriculture is the main occupation of inhabitants today as well. The entrepreneurial sphere is not significant at Lázi; this is why the working age inhabitants mostly commute from the village to nearby towns.

Life is quiet and peaceful in this settlement. Lázi is infrastucturally well equipped and easily accessible from trunk road No. 82. It takes only 30 minutes to drive to Lázi from Győr, the county seat. The Tatabánya-Pápa railway line also runs through the settlement. On June 30th 1999 Lázi seceded from Veszprém County and it became a settlement of Győr-Moson-Sopron County. On January 1, 2003 Lázi established a joint notarial district with the neighbouring settlement of Tápszentmiklós.

The settlement maintains a kindergarten and a lower primary school for its children.
