Opportunities for Discovery

Moravská Třebová lies on the border of Bohemia and Moravia. The city was founded in the mid-13th century by Boreš of Rýzmburk as a typical colonisation city with a regular town square layout. To this day there are numerous buildings and works of art that serve as a reminder of the economic prosperity and the high quality cultural life during the reign of the Lords of Boskovice and Ladislav Velen of Žerotín (1486-1622), when Moravská Třebová was a centre for humanist education and acquired the nickname of “Moravian Athens.” Moravská Třebová was a part of the German language island known as Hřebečsko (Schönhengstgau) until 1945, and its economy was dominated by textile manufacturing.

Opportunities for Appreciating Beauty

There is an entire spectrum of opportunities for appreciating beauty in Moravská Třebová. Let us begin at the château, which is home to one of the oldest surviving Renaissance monuments north of the Alps: the château portal from 1492. The château was gradually reconstructed over time and has become a highly sought-after centre for cultural and social activities – In the centre of town one can admire Late Gothic and Renaissance maashauses, which are again being used as shops, offices, etc.; the Renaissance town hall is particularly noteworthy. Other important monuments, a one-of-a-kind collection of stone tombstones in particular, are concentrated on nearby Křížový vrch Hill. Some of its valuable works of art date back to the Baroque period, when exceptional artists such as J. T. Supper, J. Pacák and others worked in the city. The historical centre of the city, together with the château complex and Křížový vrch Hill, are part of the urban conservation reserve.

Opportunities for Spiritual Experiences

Visitors will take away valuable and lasting memories not only from tours of the museums and galleries, but also from countless regular and special cultural and social events. In addition to regularly alternating exhibits, the municipal museum features a permanent exhibit featuring the Holzmaister collection of non-European art. The ancient Egypt section has been newly reinstalled and features the mummy of Princess Hereret. After the Náprstek Museum, this Egyptian collection is the largest in the country. The exposition is set up as an ancient Egyptian tomb with wall murals. New tour circuits have been prepared for château visitors that depict the lives of burghers from the Baroque period and later, and a history of peasant residences in the Moravská Třebová region. You can combine these experiences with one of the many options from modern day life. A few of the more well-known of these include the Slovak Culture Days festival, the annual Medieval Trades festival, the theatre and music of the Château Tricks and Diversions festival, the provincial showcase of Štronzo’s one-act and one-actor plays, the Moravská Třebová Arcade international festival of choral singing and the Folk Festival in August at the nearby Cimburk Castle ruins.

Opportunities for Business

Moravská Třebová has a long tradition of industrial manufacturing that stretches back to the 19th century. The greatest potential in terms of the work force was represented by professional workers in light and medium manufacturing and in the textile industry. Today, this tradition of a qualified work force has formed the foundation for domestic as well as international enterprises.

Opportunities for Investment

The city of Moravská Třebová devotes considerable attention to ensuring that incoming investors are met with favourable conditions. The city’s industrial zone, situated on the western edge of the city, has an area of 10 ha. It lies in the direct vicinity of the I/35 expressway from Olomouc to Hradec Králové, with a connection to Prague via the D11 highway. Utility networks are located on the property borders, and transport is possible without the need to pass through the city. In order to ensure suitable conditions for the city’s continued development, a wastewater treatment plant, a 100/22 kV electrical substation and a municipal digital PBX were built. Two high-pressure natural gas lines have been routed to the city, with sufficient capacity for further development. In order to support housing, the city has built 110 residential units in recent years on Jiráskova, Svitavská, Farní, and Hřebečská streets. The construction of individual residential houses is expanding successfully in areas on Nerudova, Strážnického, and Dr. Loubala streets.

Moravská Třebová and its Region

Successful Projects Representing the Entire Country

The union of towns of the Moravská Třebová and Jevíčko Region has joined the European Union’s pre-accession programme, SAPARD, with a great deal of success. This programme helped support the “Restoration of Historical Buildings in the Moravská Třebová and Jevíčko Region as a Centre for Living and Business” project with three sub-projects in Jevíčko, Jaroměřice, and Vránová Lhota. The sophistication of these projects resulted in their designation as representatives for the entire Czech Republic, and they became a part of both a European conference organised by the European Commission on regional development, as well as part of the SPMIT (Strategic Planning of Cities and Information Technology) conference, both held in Moravská Třebová. Moravská Třebová continues in its effort to draw as much as possible on experiences both from EU pre-accession programmes, but also from collaborations with experts from partner cities, which was the foundation of the Citizens Information Centre (OIC) project. The OIC is a unique project that was created based on a Dutch model. Its aim is to ease and improve communications between the town hall and city residents and to focus the majority of the provided products and services of the municipal office in one centre so that citizens are no longer forced to run about numerous offices located in numerous different buildings. Thanks to the fact that the project utilised citizen participation (citizen participation in the decision-making process), residents were able to suggest which activities and services the OIC will offer,
The OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) unites almost thirty of the most-developed countries worldwide, including the Czech Republic. The Moravská Třebová and Jevíčko Region was selected by the Czech Ministry of Regional Development as a region suitable for conducting an analysis of a micro-region affected by structural issues. The Moravská Třebová and Jevíčko Region was the first ever micro-region in the Czech Republic that collaborated with the OECD as a small territorial body. The study that the OECD produced contains an analysis of the given territory, an analysis of national and local policies and possible scenarios for further development. These formed the basis of establishing recommendations in the areas of transportation, services, tourism, agriculture and small- and large-scale business.
