The first written mention of Pozlovicensem was in 1287 in connection with Soběhrd von Pozlovice. In 1399 a Mikuschek de Pozlowicz ( Mikúšek z Pozlovic ) was mentioned. The oldest documentary evidence of Pozlowicze shows the village in 1412 as part of the Světlov domain belonging to Eliška Světlovská von Sternberg . Since 1449 there is a parish in Pozlovice. In the power struggles between Georg von Podiebrad and Matthias Corvinus , the castles Světlov and Engelsberg were destroyed. Ctibor von Landstein had the Nový Světlov Castle built near Bojkovice as the new seat of the rule between 1480 and 1500 . In 1563 Kateřina von Vlčnov signed the rule over to her nephew Friedrich Tettauer von Tettau . After his death in 1577 his brother Burian inherited the entire property. This, as well as his sons Wenceslaus and Wilhelm, increasingly owed their possessions from the Světlov and Sehradice estates. In 1594, Wenzel Tettauer sold the Nový Světlov castle with all its accessories to Jan Jetřich von Kunovice. After another change of ownership, the Serényi counts acquired the goods in 1629. After the death of their older brothers, Paul and Gabriel Serényi shared the property in 1633. Paul received the goods Luhačovice , Poslowitz , Řetechov, Pradlisko, Provodov , Podhradí , Petrůvka , Žilín, Kladná and Přečkovice, from which he formed the new rule Luhačovice, while the remaining part of Světlov and the fiefdom Vasilsko fell to Gabriel . In 1642, Count Paul Serény had the old wooden church demolished and replaced with a stone structure. After the Turkish invasion of 1663, the rectory and the church had to be repaired. In 1670 the place was called Pozlowitz . In 1655 Ořechov was parish and set up its own parish there. In November 1704, the burned Kuruc down the whole village. On February 25, 1758, Maria Theresia elevated Poslowicz to a town and granted the privilege of holding a weekly market and an annual cattle market. The oldest town seal dates from 1759. The parish of Pozlovice was greatly reduced in size in the 18th century, in 1735 a separate parish was established in Provodov, in 1784 in Luhačovice and 1785 in Horní Lhota. With the establishment of the spa between Poslowicz and Luhačovice, the town experienced a further boom in the second half of the 18th century. Until the middle of the 19th century, Poslowitz remained subordinate to the Luhačovice rule.
