Town of Kopřivnice

The beginnings of the town of Kopřivnice can be dated back to the stone age. A hill called Kotouč u Štramberka located in the vicinity of the town is an archeological place of discovery of the path of the settlements and bones from as far as 40 000 years before Christ. The town of Kopřivnice itself has been grounded back in 1621, where it was plundered by Valach troups, lead by Adam from Vítkov.

Nowadays, the town of Kopřivnice is well-known mainly due to the automobile industry - namely "TATRA". It could seem that the manufacturing industry estimated the flair of the town, but the opposite is right - - Kopřivnice offers a lot of tourist attractions - such as the view point of Bílá hora, Laššská educative path, Raška´s view spot and many others...



The Technical Museum TATRA Kopřivnice

Soon after the end of the 2nd world war, with the help of the leaders of the town Kopřivnice of that time, one of the historical buildings (the villa of the family of the carriage grounder - Ignác Šustala) has been estimated in Janáček Gardens for the needs of the newly rising museum. The native of Kopřivnice, Emil Hanzelka has moved his private collections here and he started to create the exhibiton of the at that time called „Lašské museum“. On August 24th 24. 8 1947 the museum was opened for the first time to public. Since then, the museum has been filled with many exhibits where the most known was the automobile Präsident, which double-cylinder motor has been started as a part of the demostrative show in 1974.


Kopřivnice and The Technical Museum Tatra was also visited by the Czech president of that time, Mr. Václav Havel and on September 30th 2004, also by the current president Václav Klaus, who was awarded the citizen ship of honour of the town of Kopřivnice in April of the same year.
