Troubsko (German Strutz) is a village and municipality (obec) in Brno-Country District in the South Moravian Region of the Czech Republic.

The municipality covers an area of 6.03 square kilometres (2.33 sq mi), and has a population of 2,022 (as at 28 August 2006).

Troubsko lies approximately 9 kilometres (6 mi) south-west of Brno and 182 km (113 mi) south-east of Prague.


The first written reference about this village comes from year 1237, when in the charter of a king Václav I. is Robert from Troubsko cited as a witness. This lower nobleman apparently wasn’t the owner of the whole village; later references testify that Troubsko was in accordance with the then practice of fragmented holdings divided among several owners. In the years 1317-1389 there existed a feudal estate of the Olomouc bishopric. In 1349 Luder, prior of the Dominicans in Brno, bought with his niece Catherine four acres in Troubsko from the citizen named Anselm and donated them to Herbursk monastery. This part of the village administratively separated from the remaining larger part for a long time and after the transfer of assets of Herbursk monastery to a Jesuit college in the years 1578-1581 it became a part of the estate of Řečkovice. Stated greater part of the village, divided into unequal shares, changed owners frequently, and during the 14th and 15th century was held by members of various noble families - from Křižínkov, from Rohozov, from Svojanov and especially numerous members of the old gentry family from Heršpice.

Matyáš Munk from Ivančice bought the whole village and from the year 1573 he is cited as the only owner, until 1609. In these years he also began the construction of the castle in place of former fortress. To the other owners of the estate belonged personalities like Karel Elder of Žerotín, Albrecht from Valdštejn or Jiří Rupert Hausperský.

Troubsko reached the largest economic and cultural development in 1735 to 1806, when Tomáš Jan Sekora from Sekenberg owned the village. He devoted himself to the economy, expanded the number of artisans and supported fishing and forestry. After his untimely death his wife Anna Marie and his daughter Marie Cecilie continued in his work. The most sights are preserved until now from this period.

In 1826 the manor was given to Leopold Hodak. At this time was built the school and the railroad; the village was also promoted as township in 1876. The public activity of the population began to develop in unprecedented extent; in this time the alliance of Poděbrady, fire brigade, TJ Sokol and Eagle were established. Ethnographical Exhibition was held from which is passed the preservation of the old customs and traditions.

The last owners of Troubsko’s manor in interwar period were Hugo Ptáčník, Josefa Gabriela Ptáčníková and Bedřich Hochberg.
