About this sound Nýdek  (Polish: Nydek , German: Niedek) is a village in Frýdek-Místek District, Moravian-Silesian Region, Czech Republic. It has a population of 1,952 (2001 census), 26.6% of the population are the Poles.[1]

It lies on the slopes of the Silesian Beskids mountain range, in the historical region of Cieszyn Silesia. Hluchová River flows through the village.

History[edit]

The village was first mentioned in a written document in 1430 as Nidek.[2] Politically the village belonged then to the Duchy of Teschen, formed in 1290 in the process of feudal fragmentation of Poland and was ruled by a local branch of Piast dynasty. In 1327 the duchy became a fee of Kingdom of Bohemia, which after 1526 became part of the Habsburg Monarchy.

After 1540s Protestant Reformation prevailed in the Duchy of Teschen and later local Lutherans built a wooden church here (it it was not built earlier by Catholics). It was taken from them (as one from around fifty buildings) in the region by a special commission and given back to the Roman Catholic Church on 21 March 1654.[3]
