Velke Losiny is situated north of the Moravian city of Šumperk in the east of the Czech Republic . The village lies in the valley of the Desná and Losinka rivulets, in beautiful nature of the Hrubý Jeseník mountain range. Velke Losiny has a population of about 3,000 inhabitants.

Witchcraft Trials

The first mention of Velke Losiny dates back to the beginning of the 14th century. Since the second half of the 15th century the municipality belonged to the Žerotínové family. In mid-16th century Velke Losiny became the center of their land and it flourished. Under the rule of Jan Jr. from Žerotín, the local fortress was reconstructed to become a representative Renaissance castle, a paper-mill was founded and a new Lutheran church and a school were built. In 1678 the countess Galle invited the inquisitor Henri Boblig from Edelstadt to the Velke Losiny lands. That was the beginning of the well-known witchcraft trials. 56 persons from the Losiny lands became victims of these trials. This event served as inspiration to the artist Václav Kaplický, who wrote about it in his book Kladivo na čarodějnice (Witchhammer) . At the beginning of the 19th century, Velke Losiny was purchased by the Liechtenstein family. A brewery was built in the village at that time. The construction of a weaving mill and an engineering plant followed. Last but not least, the spa was expanded. Further expansion of Velke Losiny Spa followed in 1923, when a new sanatorium was built.
