History

Česká Třebová was founded in the 13th century by king's locator lord Oldřich of Drnholec. In that time, the Roman church of St. Catherine was built. In 1304, the King of Bohemia Wenceslaus II gave it to the Zbraslav Abbey and later, in the 14th century, the town belonged to the bishops of Litomyšl. In the 15th and 16th centuries, the town prospered but due to the subsequent loss of its city rights, the Thirty Years' War, plagues and fires, it became poor and insignificant. In the 19th century, a railway station was built, which greatly aided the city development.

The city's coat of arms sports a black rooster with a human head on a red field. According to a legend, a city scribe lost the city signet and was sentenced to die as a result. Before the execution, his wife saw a rooster dug out the signet from trash, saving her husbands life.

Sports

The city is home to a 4th league Ice Hockey club, HC Kohouti Česká Třebová (cs), who play at the "Na Skále" arena with a capacity of 1,200.

Transport
