The municipality covers an area of 21.13 square kilometres (8.16 sq mi), and has a population of 747 (as at 2 October 2006).

History

The municipality was founded in 1527 and further developed during the 16th century because of growing mining activities - the silver ores were found around the village Ratibořice and mineworkers were coming from Krušné hory area. After the thirty years war a new rise in silver mining occurred after 1737 under lordship of the Schwarzenbergs and at the end of the 18th century the population reached its peak of over 1000.
