The village is situated at the foot of the White Carpathians, about 8 km far from Strážnice, 207 metres above sea level. The first written report about the village comes from 1371.
The Church of St. John the Baptist from the 17th century was re-built in 1902 and between 1986 and 1989, its interior was largely reconstructed by Ludvík Kolek, the painter from Brno. Joža Úprka, the painter of Slovácko (Moravian-Slovakia), lived and worked in the village. His house was re-built according to the design of architect Dušan Jurkovič in 1904. In 1899, Josef Pavlica, the Mayor and provincial deputy was awarded the golden Cross of Merit. On this occasion, the linden alley, creating axis of the village was planted. It became „family silver" for our village and generations of the local inhabitants care for it and its future.

Since 1993, as a Member of the Project for Country Renovation, the village has been refreshing its cultural life and traditions, such as Ride of Kings. In addition, new traditions come into being, e.g. tableau of Nativity Scene, Show of Men’s Choirs or Delayed New Year’s Eve.

Annually held events:
  • February – Carnival

  • Easter Sunday – wine tasting

  • Mid-June – Village Day, sports and games

  • The first weekend in September– Show of Men’s Choirs
