Hradec nad Moravicí (Czech pronunciation: [ˈɦradɛts ˈnad moravɪtsiː]; German: Grätz) is a town in Opava District in the Moravian-Silesian Region of the Czech Republic. It has around 5,500 inhabitants. It lies about 8 kilometres (5 mi) south of Opava. The town is dominated by a castle complex.


The area around Hradec nad Moravicí was first settled approximately between 3000 and 2700 BC. A fort was built in the 8th century, which by the 11th century had a full military garrison. The fort was built up into a RomanesqueGothic castle under the Přemyslid dynasty. The town suffered during the Thirty Years War and lost its city rights for a short time. In 1778, the castle was purchased by the princes of the house of Lichnovský, who would remain there until 1945.[2]

The town experienced significant industrial growth in 19th century and a railway was connected to the town in 1905.[2] Before World War I, according to the 1910 Austrian census, the town had 329 inhabitants, 314 of whom had permanent residence there. The census asked people for their native language: 169 (53.8%) were German-speaking and 144 (45.9%) were Czech-speaking. The largest religious group was Roman Catholics with 327 (99.4%).[3] In 1938, the town was annexed by Nazi Germany. It was returned to Czechoslovakia in 1945, when the town's German-speaking population was expelled.[2]


The town features regular concerts and an annual music competition.[4]
