The town was originally founded as a mining town next to silver and lead mines in 13th century. The origin of the towns' name comes probably from búda (miner's house). The town was first mentioned in documents in 1301.[2]

Until 1918, the town of Bautsch 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.[3]

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.[4] The German-speaking population, which formed to majority of the town's population, was expelled in 1945 (further to the Beneš decrees) and new Czech settlers came to the town, that was renamed to replace the original German name.
