The first report of the community of Věrovany is from the year 1131 in a document of the Olomouc archbishop Zídek. The name Věrovany takes its origins from some kinds of vortices, probably whirlpools. Mineral water springs are indeed abundant in Věrovany, in fact baths were also formed, of which the first mention dates from the year 1502. Today's community is composed of three parts: Věrovany, Rakodavy and Nenakonice. We have a total of 1362 inhabitants. An eminent personage worth mentioning is the writer Otokar Bystřina (*23.5.1861), real name Ferdinand Dostál, whose most famous work was the
Hanáclá legenda (The Legend of Haná) (1904).
