Brumov-Bylnice (Czech pronunciation: [ˈbrumov ˈbɪlɲɪtsɛ]) is a town in the Zlín Region, Czech Republic. It is located 7 km from Valašské Klobouky.

The first evidence of settlement dates back to the Paleolith. In the first half of the 13th century, a late-Romanesque royal castle was built there.

In the time of the First Czechoslovak Republic, a railway line was constructed in Brumov. On 14 June 1964, two villages, Brumov and Bylnice, were united to form Brumov-Bylnice, that gained the status of a town on 1 January 1965. Since 15 July 1976, Svatý Štěpán has been part of the town. On 24 July 1997, Sidonie joined the town.

Among the most important monuments belong the ruins of the royal castle and the baroque sculpture from 1777, which is situated in the square. The historical centre of Brumov and nearby workers colony were declared town monumental zones in 1995.
