Czernahora was first mentioned in 1049 on the occasion of the consecration of the Raigern monastery . Another mention comes from the year 1279. The castle of the same name, built in the 13th century, was owned by Matthias von Czernahora from 1281 to 1298. From 1333 to 1597 the place belonged to the Lords of Boskowitz , who, after losing their ancestral seat Boskowitz to the Lords of Kunstadt in the 14th century , used the nickname "Černohorský".

Černá Hora Castle

In 1390, Czernahora, the seat of the rulers of the same name, was first referred to as a town. In Latin scripts it is referred to by the place name Nigromons , in registers on birth, marriage and death, Montenegro is used until the end of the First World War in 1918 , or Schwarzenberg for German-speaking believers .

In 1530 the brothers Tas and Jaroslav Černohorský von Boskowitz founded a brewery that achieved good sales with their Montenegro beer . After 1556, Albrecht Černohorský von Boskowitz had the ruined castle rebuilt into a Renaissance chateau. After the death of Johann "Šembera" von Boskowitz and Černahora, with whom the Boskowitzers died in 1597, his daughter Anna Maria , who was married to Karl I von Liechtenstein , inherited Czernahora. During the rule of the Liechtenstein family from 1707–1710 the church of St. Laurentius was built. In 1711 Czernahora came to the Auersperg , later to the Morzin- Czernin family . After the abolition of patrimonial the place came to the Brno district in 1848 .

Černá Hora Brewery

The best-known company in the area is the Černá Hora brewery, which produces the beer brand of the same name. Černá Hora has been a Městys since 2006 .

The population development was moderate. In 1880 there were 1287 inhabitants (only Czechs), in 1930 there were 1536 and in 1991 1904 inhabitants. The coat of arms of the place with the silver jagged bar in red is the coat of arms of the Lords of Boskowitz and Schwarzenberg and keeps the memory of their historical importance alive.
