Hlinsko

Hlinsko  is a town in the Pardubice Region of the Czech Republic and the town is located on the edge of beautiful nature of the Iron Mountains and the Žďárské Hills.

The first inhabitants settled in the slightly elevated area over the River Chrudimka as far back as the 12th century, historically documented by a written report dating back to 1349. Until the 19th century, Hlinsko shared the fortunes of the lords of Pardubice and Rychmburk. This connection with the lords of Pardubice is commemorated in the town coat-of-arms, half of a white stepping horse with a blue bridle on a red background. The main livelihood of the inhabitants here was agriculture, pottery and cottage weaving. Hlinsko gained city status in 1834.

Hlinecko region is a perfect place for hiking trips, cycling, cross-country and down-hill skiing.
