Luhačovice is a spa town in the Zlín Region, Moravia, Czech Republic.It occupies a valley whose elevation is a minimum of 250 m above sea level. The north-western edge of the valley is formed by the slopes of Malé Kamenné. The south-eastern part is formed by the forested Obětové peak . The southern section of the vale is surrounded by the hills Velké Kamenné, Solné, Zálužné, Lužné and Ovčírny . All of these hills are part of the Vizovická vrchovina and the Bílé Karpaty . The highest peak in the Luhačovice area is Komonec, 672 m above sea level. The eastern and south-eastern sections of the Luhačovice vicinity are part of the Chráněná krajinná oblast Bílé Karpaty .HistoryLuhačovice is first mentioned in a historical document of 1412. It is, however, supposed to have been founded before the year 1287. At the end of the 16th century Luhačovice became the chief townlet of a manor including 12 villages. In the years 1626-1945 the manor and later the country estate belonged to the Serenyi family; they were also the first to make use of the mineral springs in the area and who built the spa. Local names give evidence that the springs were known and used here ever since the area had begun to be settled; they are first mentioned in the 1669 book Tartaro Mastix Moraviae by Johann Ferdinand Hertodt von Totenfeld.A new stage of development of both the spa and the town appeared at the beginning of the 20th century when a Czech doctor, František Veselý, M.D., came to Luhačovice. He decided to get financial means to change Luhačovice into a modern Czech spa by establishing a joint-stock company, which took over the spa from the control of the Serenyis in 1902. They, however, kept on taking a significant part in it financially. The remote and not easily accessible position of the spa was overcome when a local railway line was built here in the year 1904, even before the number of visitors increased due to the construction of the Vlárská Railway Line (1888) and more distant Northern Railway Line (1841). The first stage of important building development of the spa area was connected with the name of the ancient Dušan Jurkovič, the author of the fundamental reconstruction of the Janův House, the hydropathic establishment and other places.
