It is located close to the Slovak and Polish borders on the banks of Ostravice River and offers beautiful views of the Beskydy Mountains. The first written documentation about the founding of a village under the ownership of the Bishop Bruno originates from 1267. The city was established along the so-called Amber Trail, used by traders as the main route connecting the Baltic Sea to the Mediterranean Sea since time immemorial.
