Fryšták (German: Freistadtl) is a town in Zlín Region of Czech Republic. Situated between the cities of Zlín and Holešov on the Fryštácký stream, it is under the Hostýnsko-vsetínská hornatina mountain range on the border between Moravian Wallachia and Hanakia.


Early records documented in the 14th century, January 15, 1356: "... Nicolaus Luce de Freystat clerius Olomoucensis diocesis, publicus auctoritate imperiali notarius ...".[1]

By the 19th Century Fryšták was notable for agriculture and wood production. The fire of 1841 caused Fryšták's traditional wooden buildings to be replaced by more modern buildings. By the latter 20th century a contemporary wave of building with construction of many new houses included the installation of modern infrastructure such as natural gas lines and telephone networks.[2]
