Sumperk

Šumperk is a district town in the Olomouc Region of the Czech Republic. It is the centre of the north of Moravia and, due to its location, is known as "The Gate to the Jeseníky mountains."EtymologyThe original German name is a compound of an adjective "schön" (meaning "beautiful") and a noun "berg" (meaning "hill"), later supplemented by a distinguishing adjective Mährisch (= Moravian). The Czech name evolved from a direct phonetic transcription of Schönberg – "Šenberk" (schön=šen; berg=berk), later "Šumberk" and finally "Šumperk". (There are many place names with similar origins across the Czech Republic, such as Šumbark or Žumberk.)After World War II and the expulsion of Germans, there was a suggestion of giving the town a name with Czech origins. Suggestions included approximate translations such as Krásná Hora or Krásno nad Desnou and names unrelated to the original name, such as Svobodov, Velenov, and Jeseník (which was ultimately used for nearby Frývaldov). In the end the name of Šumperk remained unchanged.HistoryPrehistory, antiquity, Early Middle AgesThe Šumperk Basin area was probably not permanently inhabited. It has been speculated that the Desná Valley was an alternative route of the Amber Road.
