About this sound Svibice  (Polish: Sibica , German: Schibitz) was a village in Karviná District, Moravian-Silesian Region, Czech Republic. It was a separate municipality, but became administratively a part of Český Těšín in 1947.

The village was first mentioned in 1461.[1] It belonged then to the Duchy of Teschen, formed in 1290. Before 1920 the village of Błogocice was administratively a part of Svibice, but after division of Cieszyn Silesia in that year it became a separate municipality. In 1947 Svibice was submerged with Český Těšín. During the communist era a massive construction of so-called paneláks occurred and Svibice was transformed into an urban neighbourhood. Some old houses still remain, although the majority of the population of Svibice live in paneláks.
