Beňov (German Beniow ) is a municipality in the Czech Republic . It is located six kilometers southeast of Přerov and belongs to the Okres Přerov .


Beňov is located on the western slope of the Podbeskydská pahorkatina ( Vorbeskidenhügelland ) to the Upper Moravian Basin ( Hornomoravský úval ). The village is on the left side of the Moštěnka between the confluences of the Tučínský potok and Beňovský potok. To the north rises the Tmeň (260 m), in the southeast the Obora (303 m), to the south the Vranice (332 m) and the Holý Kopec (360 m), in the southwest the Robotňa (283 m) and to the northwest the Švédské šance (298 m) m). The forest area of Obecní les extends to the southeast and the Přestavlcký les to the south . To the north of the village lies the desert of Běškovice or Běšovice.

Neighboring towns are Želatovice in the north, Prusy, Čechy and Domaželice in the Northeast, Marianín and Líšná the east, Kocanda, Zámeček, Prusinovice and Pacetluky the southeast, Karlovice , Kostelec u Holešova , Stará Ves and Přestavlky in the south, Dobrčice in the southwest, Mlyn Stolbach and Horní Moštěnice in the west and Lověšice and Újezdec in the northwest.


The first written mention of the village took place in 1365 in the Landtafel as Beynow or Bínov . But the place is much older. The water mill was probably built in the 13th century, and a millstone found there bears the inscription ANNO 1226 . It is assumed that both a Vladike von Byn, mentioned as a witness in 1130, as well as the Nahrad de Binon documented between 1318 and 1322 were related to the place. The northern village of Běškovice became extinct during the Hussite Wars . Its corridors were slammed to Beňov. As the owners of Beňov and Běškovice, various Vladiken sexes from the area alternated until the end of the 15th century. After the death of the squire Václav Sulovský von Třebule, Wilhelm von Pernstein administered his property in trust. In 1481 he granted his subjects the right of repatriation and ten years later he bought the estate and the Beňov fortress from Sulovský orphans and gave them to his rule Přerov . A special list made in 1564 for Vratislav von Pernstein about the taxes for the desert Běškovska shows that both the corridors of the village and the extinct farm of Bískovský were divided into 28 equal parts. The other owners included Herren zu Windisch-Graetz . The oldest local seal was created in 1710 during the reign of Leopold Victorin zu Windisch-Graetz and bears the legend PECZET DIEDINY BEYNIOWA . During the Austrian War of Succession , Beňov was burned down by Prussian troops in 1741 together with Horní Moštěnice. During the reconstruction, the residents asked permission to build a church, but they were denied it. Instead, the St. Florian Chapel was built. Until the middle of the 19th century, the village was always subject to Přerov.

After the abolition of patrimonial Bejnov / Beynow formed a municipality in the Kremsier district authority from 1850 . After the unsuccessful assassination attempt on Emperor Franz Joseph I on February 17, 1853, the community was able to successfully apply for a new church building in thanks to the Lord for saving the emperor's life. The parish continued to be Horní Moštěnice, and in 1870 a separate parish was set up in Beňov. The community has been part of the Prerau district since 1880 . In 1964 Prusy was incorporated. the district of Beňov today consists of 216 houses with 625 residents. Prusy has 70 inhabitants and consists of 30 houses. Ethnographically the village belongs to Hanna .
