The village lies in the historical region of Cieszyn Silesia and is situated on the Kopytná creek on the foothills of the Moravian-Silesian Beskids mountain range.
After Revolutions of 1848 in the Austrian Empire a modern municipal division was introduced in the re-established Austrian Silesia. The village as a municipality was subscribed to the political district of Cieszyn and the legal district of Jablunkov. According to the censuses conducted in 1880, 1890, 1900 and 1910 the population of the municipality dropped from 480 in 1880 to 471 in 1910 with a majority being native Polish-speakers (between 96.8% and 100%) accompanied by German-speaking people (at most 15 or 3.2% in 1880). In terms of religion in 1910 the majority were Protestants (87.7%), followed by Roman Catholics (12.9%).
After World War I, fall of Austria-Hungary, Polish–Czechoslovak War and the division of Cieszyn Silesia in 1920, it became a part of Czechoslovakia. Following the Munich Agreement, in October 1938 together with the Zaolzie region it was annexed by Poland, administratively adjoined to Cieszyn County of Silesian Voivodeship. It was then annexed by Nazi Germany at the beginning of World War II. After the war it was restored to Czechoslovakia.
