Džbánov is a small village in the Pardubice Region in the northeast of Bohemia, Czech Republic. It lies near the southern border of Ústí nad Orlicí District, close to Svitavy District, situated around 3 km to the southeast of Vysoké Mýto. The village is also called Džbánov u Vysokého Mýta (Džbánov by Vysoké Mýto).

The population of the village is about 310 inhabitants.

History[edit]

The village was founded at the end of the 13th century. In the 14th century Zbraslav monastery owned the village. After Hussite wars the village property was split to become a property of several placeholders (emperor, the town of Vysoké Mýto, nobility, etc.).[2] The town of Vysoké Mýto owned the whole village between the end of the 16th century to 1850. Then the village became autonomous.

Name[edit]

The name of the village probably originates in personal name Čban. One of the first reeves or inhabitants was called that. Later the village was called Čbánov and then Džbánov.
