The brook Bublavský potok flows through Bublava and the very peak of the Aschberg is found on its territory.
The first mention in official documents dates back to 1601. Historically, Bublava has had a strong connection to the Aschberg areas of Klingenthal.
Trade and intermarriage denied the divide given by the border, which once separated Bohemia (and, at times, Austria–Hungary) from Saxony. The inhabitants' alienation and separation from Klingenthal was largely induced through the draconian post-World-War-II resettlement moves by Soviet forces, who systematically depopulated the areas bordering the GDR up to kilometers into then Czechoslovakia, deporting the (mostly German and multicultural) population. Some of these deportations forced those then-refugees, to resettle in central Asia and other remote areas of the Suviet Union, if not outright deportation into Gulags.
Nowadays, Bublava is famous mostly as a skiing and snowboarding resort.
