The eldest mentions about this town are from 1350 when it was a part of the possession of Rychtenburk dominion. The old settlement got the name after the twisting river Svratka flowing nearby. In 1867 it has been promoted to a town. This event changed markedly lives of citizens. Wide-spread crafts were pottery, tannery, shoemaking and wood craft. The local museum is interesting as well. Besides other exhibits you can see there a shoemaking shop, a merchants’ shop, or a hatter workshop.
