The street village Křoví extends in the Krischanauer Uplands ( Křižanovská vrchovina ) in the south of the Bohemian-Moravian Highlands in the valley of a left tributary to the Bílý potok . The village is surrounded by the forest areas of the Deblin Forest, Czerwena Forest and Radostin Forest. The Bítešská horka (491 m) rises to the southwest, at its foot the Bítýška flows into the Bílý potok.
Neighboring towns are Křižínkov in the north, Pánov in the Northeast, Svatoslav to the east, Rýglovský Mlyn, Spálený Mlyn, Panovsky Mlyn and Radoškov the southeast, Přibyslavice and Otmarov in the south, Velká Bíteš in the southwest and Radostínský Mlyn, Vlkov and Březské in the northwest.
The village was laid out at the beginning of the 13th century in the course of the German colonization of the area of Heynrichs under Margrave Vladislav Heinrich and originally called Dietrichsdorf , later as Krzowe . The first documentary mention of the village of Krzowe , which belonged to the Meziříčí rule , took place in 1371 when Jan von Meziříčí sold it to Vojslav von Křižínkov. After another change of ownership, the Pernsteiners acquired the village in the 15th century. In 1618 the place was attached to the Jinošov rule . In 1629 Albrecht von Waldstein acquired the goods. Later the village was attached to the Náměšť rule . Several iron ore shafts have been operated around Krzowy since the 18th century.
After the abolition of patrimonial Krzowy formed from 1850 a district of the city of Velká Bíteš in the district administration Velké Meziříčí. In 1867 the village of Křoví was established. Between 1870 and 1885 graphite and limonite were mined in the quarry on the Bítešská horka . In 1900 575 people lived in the 72 houses of the village. In 1930 Křoví had 503 inhabitants and consisted of 120 houses.
In 1949 the community came to Okres Velká Bíteš, and at the beginning of 1961 it was assigned to Okres Žďár nad Sázavou . Between 1981 and 1990 Křoví was incorporated into Velká Bíteš. In 1990 the community came into being again. It consists of 209 residential buildings.
