Svibice (help·info) (Polish: , 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. 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.
