The town was probably founded in the 1st half of the 14th century. Many important Czech personalities were born in the town and can be seen in the exhibition in the local Ethnographic Museum, which also displays a mechanical nativity scene. Other exhibitions present skiing, the tradition of amateur theatre and the Vysoké theatre ensemble. The local school was attended by 19th century political leaders such as František Ladislav Rieger and Karel Kramář. The most popular event in the town is the Krakonoš Autumn Theatre, a meeting of the country’s amateur theatre ensembles held since 1971.
