Pržno is a village in the Moravian-Silesian Region of the Czech Republic. It has 916 inhabitants and lies on the slopes of the Moravian-Silesian Beskids, in the historical region of Těšín Silesia.


The village was first mentioned in 1580 as Perzno.[1][2] It was then a part of the Friedeck state country that was split from the Duchy of Teschen in 1573 when the village must have already existed. The state country was also a part of the Kingdom of Bohemia, since 1526 a part of the Habsburg Monarchy.

After World War I and fall of Austria-Hungary it became a part of Czechoslovakia. In March 1939 it became a part of Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia. After World War II it was restored to Czechoslovakia.
