Krásná was first mentioned in 1331 as a property of Neuberg. Around 1400 Krásná was bought by the Zedtwitz. This noble house controlled whole Aš region for almost 500 years. In 1642 a small castle was built here, but in 1828 it burnt out.
In 1898, a village brewery was opened, although it is no longer in use.
The castle was torn down in the 1950s.
From 1960 Krásná was one of districts of Aš, but in 1989 its own municipality was created with Kamenná.
A train station named Aš-předměstí is located a few metres from the village. A bus stop is also located in the village.
