ABSTRACT

Hlucin town, together with its surrounding area, is a typically historically- rich example of the region, which undoubtedly has influenced the historical development of its entire area - an area characterized by its frequent changes and various political, ethnic, economic, social, cultural and spiritual impact. Some historic moments are therefore reflected even in the present day, whether the actual location, structure of the city centre, the emergence of a fortification and its current state, changes in the ethnic composition of the population and different political systems, religious influences, changing the function of the city in relation to its surroundings, and the frequently changing position of the national border, its close proximity to Ostrava and its influence on its further development, natural conditions, sports or cultural background. Therefore, the current appearance of the city is the result of all possible influences, and it will be interesting to see where its further development will be directed and how the city will resist other influences, and whether it will retain its identity in the future, as it retained it in the past.
