About Náchod

Náchod, as well as the Castle Náchod , dates back to the early 13th century. The Castle Náchod was originally a Gothic castle and an important defensive point on the trade route between Prague and Silesia. The trail narrowed into the mountain pass called “a gate”. Through this gate merchants and craftsmen poured to the city, bringing prosperity with them. From the early 14th century Náchod was protected by walls, which were followed by two fortification lines extending to the castle. In this era, Horské and Krajské suburbs were established. The life in Náchod has always been closely connected with the life of the Castle Náchod .

Development of Náchod

The Smiřice family managed Náchod in 1544 – 1621. Under their rule it was a flourishing city. Náchod gained privileges similar to the privileges of royal towns. After the Battle of White Mountain (1621) Náchod estate was confiscated and sold to the Trčkas of Lipá. After the murder of Adam Erdman Trčka , when Albrecht von Wallenstein was murdered in Cheb, Náchod was given to the royal family of Piccolomini. Under their rule the city was forced to recatholicization. The Piccolominis had the Castle Náchod rebuilt and Náchod was rebuilt as well. The first street was paved in 1638, then a Baroque town hall was built in 1663 m and the church of St.Lawrence on the square was rebuilt too. Other, later owners of the city were the Desfours, then Duke Petr of Courland and Zaháňský, and then it was inherited by Princess Kateřina Vilemína Zaháňská. The last owner of Náchod was the German noble family of the Schaumburg-Lippe in 1842-1945.

Industrial Revolution

Náchod began brewing beer in 1873. In 1882 two mechanical weaving factories were built in Náchod. In the early 20th century Náchod was one of the largest cotton centers of the Austro-Hungarian Empire; it was sometimes called the "Manchester of the East".
