The village is situated on the southern rim of the historic Moravia region, close to the national Podyjí National Park stretching along the Thaya river and the border with Austria. A bridge across the river links the village of Čížov with the town of Hardegg in Lower Austria.
The settlement was first mentioned in a 1323 deed of donation issued by King John of Bohemia at Prague Castle. It had to be re-established after the devastations during the Thirty Years' War, documented as Frischau, a possession held by the Lords of Vranov, in 1671. Allocated to the newly established Czechoslovak Republic in 1919, it was incorporated into the German Reichsgau Niederdonau upon the 1938 Munich Agreement. After World War II, the German-speaking population was expelled.
