Kromeriz in the past, History of Kromeriz

The town, inhabited by slavs from the 7th century, was founded in 1260 by Bruno von Schauenburg , bishop of Olomouc. Bruno chose Kromeriz to become his see and he also made his castle the centre of his dominion which consisted of more than 60 vassals from the whole of Moravia. Kromeriz is referred to as a market village in a document by Premysl Otakar II from 1256, but in 1266 it is already called a town. Bruno also established what was to become the famous Archbishops Palace. The town was badly damaged in the Thirty Years War, was plundered twice by Swedish troops (1643 and 1645), after this the Black Death came. Bishop Karl II von Liechtenstein-Kastelkorn rebuilt the city and the palace after the war. The Constitutive Imperial Congress sat in Kromeriz in 1848.
