The beginning of the village lies deep in history and the first writing about the village is from 1237 in the Brno land archives. In previous texts it is written as Briesnik, Brzesnik, Breznik or Brieznicz. The one hundred-year-old history of Březník is connected to the nearby castles of Lamberk and Cow Mountain with main the noble dynasty Březník from Náchod and from Lamberk.
The dominating feature is a Roman-style church, The Assumption of the Virgin from the end of the 12th century which is standing on the raised area in the middle of cemetery and which is easily visible from a distance. The Church in Březník is the main historic and cultural monument of the region. It has the appearance of a cross, the nave and the transepts are in Gothic style.
