The Church of St. Adalbert was built in 1584 as a subsidiary church for Mlade Buky. However, it was very small, people even having to stand outside for mass. When it became dilapidated, a new church was built on the same site in 1777-1779 thanks to the support of Count Josef Adam of Schwarzenberg. The new church was dedicated to St. Johann of Nepomuk. The old wooden church tower was on the hill, connected to the main door by roofed wooden stairs. A stone tower was built in 1836 and the church bells were moved from the old to the new tower.
