in the 15th century next to silver mines. This circumstance gave the village
its name (Bergstadt in German). The first written trace dated back to 1489.
Dobřečov, being a local part, was mentioned in 1528. Stříbrné Hory was
mentioned in 1542. At the end of the 18th century iron ore mining and processing
