The first written mention of Krima comes from 1281, at that time the village was owned by the Teutonic Knights in Komotau . The place was on the Reichsstrasse, which on the one hand brought advantages to the village, but on the other hand also brought a lot of misfortune during the war. The inhabitants lived mainly from agriculture.
In 1872 the railway connection took place with the construction of the 57.7 km long stretch of the Buschtěhrad Railway from Komotau to Weipert , from which the line branching from Krima-Neudorf station to Reitzenhain in Saxony went into operation in 1875 . There was a connection to the Reitzenhain – Flöha railway line . Today only the line from Chomutov to Vejprty is in operation. In 1946 the German Bohemian population was expelled .
The Křimov dam was built between 1953 and 1958 .
