The name of the settlement can be translated as place of screaming. According to legend, wild screams once helped to warn inhabitants of an approaching enemy.
During the 10th century the place was owned by Slavníks. After they were killed it passed to the Děpoltic branch of the Přemyslids. Near the village stood a wooden fort, used as a watch. The first written mention comes from year 1392.
