Roztoky (Czech pronunciation: [ˈrostokɪ]; German: Rostok, older Rostock[2]) is a small town in the Czech Republic. It is located on the Vltava River, just north of Prague, the country's capital. There is approximately 8,500 inhabitants registered in the town. However, the population may soon rise due to significant development of the town in the recent years and the fact that many of the new inhabitants might not have registered their permanent residence there yet. The town was first mentioned in historical documents in 1233 CE.

The first written mention of Roztoky is found in the ruling charter from 1233, in which Peter of Roztoky was mentioned, according to archaeological findings, however, the area of Roztoky was inhabited continuously from the early Stone Age to the early Middle Ages.
