Village of Kamenná is an administrative part of Krásná.
Krásná lies 1 kilometre northwest of Aš, about 643 metres above sea level.
Krásná was first mentioned in 1331 as a property of counts of Neuberg. Around 1400 Krásná was bought by the Zedtwitz family. This noble house controlled the whole of the Aš region for almost 500 years.
In 1642 a small castle was built here, but in 1828 it suffered a catastrophic fire. In 1898, a municipal brewery was opened, although it is no longer in use. The castle was torn down in the 1950s.
From 1960 Krásná was one of the administrative parts of Aš, but in 1989 villages of Krásná and Kamenná separated and created a new municipality.
A train station Aš-předměstí is located a few metres from the village. A bus stop is also located in the municipality.
