At the beginning of the 12th century a market village was founded at the merchant road above the brook of Ještědka which was named after a lone oak tree ("dub"). Already in 1260 Dub was awarded municipal rights. From the 13th century it belonged to the Order of St. John. The Order built a fortified commendam, nowadays an important historical monument. The commendam was once visited by King Charles IV.
