[en] Trutnov is a city in the Hradec Kralove Region of the Czech Republic. It has a population of 32,000 and lies in the Giant Mountains in the valley of the Upa River. Trutnov is located on a 12th century Slavic settlement named after the Upa River. The first written mention of this settlement is from 1260. In order to develop the countryside, King Wenceslaus I of Bohemia granted German settlers the right to establish a town at the pre-existing settlement. The first mention of the German name Trautenau, from which the modern name Trutnov is derived, is from a document of King Wenceslaus II in 1301. Since the end of the 14th century Trutnov was a dowry town for the Bohemian queen. Some information about the region you can find here or here.
