Strážné (German: Pommerndorf) is a village in the Czech Republic.

History[edit]

The first written mention of Pommerdörfl dates from the year 1754. The town has had mining operations since the mid-17th century, as there has been a miners' settlement and a stamp mill on the Keilbach above the old Silesian Trail. The name of the village derives not, as a legend claims from local founders, but from the mining activity.

Strážné is a small community; nearby towns are Friesovy Boudy (Friesbauden), Herlíkovice (Hackelsdorf), Hříběcí Boudy (Füllebauden), Husí Boudy (Gansbauden), Jezerní Domky (Teichhäuser), Krásná Pláň (Schöne Lahn), Lahrovy Boudy (Lahrbauden), Mlýnské Domky (Mühlberg) Well Výhlédach (Höhenschmiede), Přední Rennerovky (Vorder Rennerbauden), Seidlovy Domky (Seidelhäuser), Šestidomí (Sächsstädten) and Zadní Rennerovky (Hinter Rennerbauden).
