How can we infer from the title, the city was associated with lead mining. This is probably mined as early as the mid-14th century, but perhaps in 1519, both derive from the date on the seal used in the 18th Olovím century, was founded by Stephen Slik owning Jáchymov town.

In 1523, however, he certainly gave a special privilege. Oloví began in 1524 to lead the top of the book and by the mid-16th century had its own seal and emblem.

In 1558 came Oloví Ferdinand I, upper right, and in 1561 the same exalted ruler of the royal mining town, which in 1581 again confirmed by Rudolf II. He even gave the city in 1594 right chastened character and red sealing wax.


On a hill above the valley has grown so Svatava city that had a rectangular square with a church in the middle. If in the 17th century there were 65 houses and two hundred years later, they stood in Oloví 168 and they lived over a thousand people.

When you were in the second half of the 19th century, the local lead mines abandoned, created in Oloví industry. In the early nineties, there established the first Czech Society for the glass industry a large factory for the production of sheet glass and mirrors. Already before the First World War, the glass factory focused on exports and the pre-Munich Republic in her work over 1200 employees.

Larger sizes in the lead and reached a production of pearl buttons, musical instruments and toys. Better known was the production of sewn and bobbin lace.

More than a hundred years has created an inherent panorama of the former royal mining town Oloví pseudo-St. Michael the Archangel. It was built on the site of one of the oldest Lutheran churches in the county. The new church was consecrated on 29th September 1902 by a priest by Archbishop Cardinal Leo von Skrblenkym. Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic declared in 2000, area church. Archangel Michael as a cultural monument. The ravages of time, but especially the lack of maintenance on this very monument sign. The result of the defects that have come up in some sections of the stage of threats to stability throughout the building. This issue has confounded not only the ecclesiastical authorities, but also citizens of the village, especially olovským natives living in Germany. After many discussions between interested parties, each has pledged financial assistance, was started in August 2004 to repair the church roof.

In the first phase of the roof was repaired, including the church tower. New sheathing, new gutters and downspouts.
