Tornanádaska (earlierly simply "Nádaska"; "Torna-Nád·as-ka" means "reedy (place) in the Torna County") is a village in the Edelényi kistérség, Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén County.


The name of the village comes from former Torna county and the Hungarian "nádas" (reedy). In the medieval ages, the name of the village was Nádasd.


The village was inhabited first by Slavic people in the early 13th century. It is written first in 1280. Originally called Nádasd, later changed to Nádaska to distinguish it from the other settlements with the same name. The name got the Torna- prefix in 1905 to represent the county, Abaúj-Torna. The population fled in 1570 from the Ottoman conquests, but was repopulated in the 17th century. The village has a Roman Catholic temple in Baroque style, which was probably built on the ruins of the previous temple in 1776. The Reformed temple only has its bell tower remained.
