City Jihlava (Czech Republic)
Jihlava is a city in the Czech Republic, located in the southeast of the country on the banks of the river of the same name on the border of the historical region of Moravia. The name of the city comes from the German name for the Iglau river. The origin of the name of the river is not exactly clear. Perhaps the name of the river comes from the old German Igulaha - hedgehog stream. Although some researchers believe that the name of the river has Old Slavonic roots.
The first mention of the settlement dates back to 1233. The growth and development of the city in the Middle Ages was associated with the discovery of silver deposits here. It was then, in the 13th century, that King Przemysl Otakar II founded the city on the site of the settlement. Jihlava at that time turned into one of the richest and largest cities in the Czech Republic. Arts and crafts, science and commerce flourished here. It was the development of crafts and trade that saved the city from decline, when silver mines were depleted in the 15th century, and the center of silver mining moved to Kutna Hora. Modern Jihlava is a large industrial, tourist and transport center of the region. Here the textile, food and woodworking industries, mechanical engineering are developing.
