Languages of publication
The Křivoklát Highlands is especially known for metal mining. In the past centuries there were also glassworks on the tradition with glassworks Antonin Rückl and sons in Nižbor founded in 1903 and a small one Glasstar in Nenačovice since 1996. We excerpted several toponyms relating to the history of glassmaking in the past and present from written and cartographic sources. The oldest glassworks in monitored location (founded by an important member of the branched family of glassmakers foreman Kryštof Schürer in 1600) was near the village Broumy. They supply their products to Prague to the imperial court of Rudolf II.
