Dvorce (German: Hof in Mähren) is a village and municipality in Bruntál District in the Moravian-Silesian Region of the Czech Republic.

History[edit]

Until 1918, Hof in Maehren was part of the Austrian monarchy (Austria side after the compromise of 1867), in the Sternberg (Šternberk) district, one of the 34 Bezirkshauptmannschaften in Moravia.[1]

An early (1919) 5 heller Czechoslovakian stamp, cancelled with the German name

In 1938, after the Munich Agreement, it was occupied by the Nazi army as one of the municipalities in Sudetenland, as one of the 6 towns of Landkreis Bärn.[2] The German speaking population was expelled in 1945 (further to the Beneš decrees) and replaced by Czech settlers, who renamed the town.
