History[edit]

Česká Třebová was founded in the 13th century by king's locator lord Oldřich of Drnholec. In this time the Roman church of St. Catherine was built. In 1304, the King of Bohemia Wenceslaus II gave it to the Zbraslav Abbey, but in 14th century the town belonged bishops of Litomyšl. In the 15th and 16th centuries the town prospered, but after the Thirty Years' War it was poor and insignificant. In 19th century was there a railway station, which greatly aided the city development.
