Both the villages are reminded in the deed of the Czech prince Boleslav
II who gave them to the new established Brevnov
monastery as a source of living in 993 A.D. Since that time they had been possessed by many subjects, for the longest period
by the Zbraslav monastery, i.e. till the year 1848 when the serfdom was abolished. Since the end of the last century the villages
have been united under the name Vran-Skochovice. During centuries the inhabitants lived from fishing, pottery and agriculture.
In 1836 the paper mill was built which employed most of local inhabitants and brought development of the village. Since the end of the last century, when the railway Praha-Dobris/Cercany has been running, another possibility of work has appeared, especially in the near-by Modrany. In 1936 the newly established hydro-electric power station has begun to work.
