Česká Třebová (Czech pronunciation: [ˈtʃɛskaː ˈtr̝̊ɛbovaː]; German: Böhmisch Trübau) is a city in the Pardubice Region of the Czech Republic. The city is located in the east of the Czech Republic. It is the fourth most populated city and second largest in the Pardubice Region. Ceska Trebova is spread over 41 km² and in 2011 the total population was 16,000 citizens.
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 the 14th century the town belonged to the bishops of Litomyšl. In the 15th and 16th centuries the town prospered, but after the Thirty Years' War it was poor and insignificant. In the 19th century there was a railway station, which greatly aided the city development.
The most important transport for Czech Trebova is rail, due to which the city developed rapidly after 1845, when there was a railway station.
