Until 1918, Bärn (named Baern before 1867) was part of the Austrian monarchy (Austria side after the compromise of 1867), in the Sternberg (Šternberk) district, one of the 34 Bezirkshauptmannschaften in Moravia.
In 1938, after the Munich Agreement, it was occupied by the Nazi army as one of the municipalities in Sudetenland, one of the 6 towns of Landkreis Bärn. The German speaking population was expelled in 1945 (further to the Beneš decrees) and replaced by Czech settlers, who renamed the town.
