Economy and infrastructure[edit]

Vrbov is a big village with touristic infrastructure. The first surviving mention was in a charter from 1251, when the Slavic village of Werbew was noted in a description of boundaries. In 1268, the German village "villa Menhardi" was noted. The two villages merged around 1271 and the resulting small town had a German character till 1945.

There are several accommodation facilities including pensions and camping site. Cultural sightseeings are classical evangelical and gothic catholc churches as well as renaissance belfry from 17th century.
