Bludov (German Blauda ) is a municipality in the Czech Republic . It is located four kilometers southwest of Šumperk ( Mährisch Schönberg ) and belongs to the Okres Šumperk .


Bludov is located north of the Mohelnická brázda (Müglitzer Furche ) on a hill between the valleys of the March and Teß . To the north rises the Háj ( Hegewald , 631 m), in the south the Brousná (364 m). The place extends along the Bludovský creek. The state road I / 11 from Šumperk to Červená Voda leads through Bludov , from which the I / 44 branches off to Zábřeh .

Neighboring towns are Hrabenov and Temenice in the north, Zámeček and Šumperk in the north-east, Třemešek, Králec and Dolní Studénky in the east, Sudkov , Postřelmov and Bludovský Mlýn in the south, Chromeč and Zborov in the west and Bohutín and Radomilov in the north-west.


The place was first mentioned in documents in 1200, probably founded by the official of the margrave, "Blud z Bludova". These Lords of Bludovec built the local castle and in the 13th century the Church of St. George. In the 14th century the property passed to the Moravian margraves, in the 15th century to the lords of Kunstadt , von Waldstein and finally the Tunkl von Brníčko . Artificial dikes were built in the area under their rule.

There was a rapid change of owners in the 16th century. In the 17th century, after the Battle of the White Mountain, it was awarded to the Liechtenstein-Kastelkorn , who built a two-winged castle here. The Žerotíns bought the place in the 18th century and held it until 1934, when the last nobleman of the family, Karel Emanuel , died. At the end of the 18th century, the Neudorf settlement emerged, which later grew together with Blauda.

The place was a purely Czech place, which in the 19th century grew into the center of the national movement in the area of Mährisch Schönberg . Industry settled in the purely agricultural village, and in 1929 Zdeněk Pospišil laid the foundation stone for local spa facilities.

The Habermann family's mill has been in the village for generations. The last owner, August Habermann, was murdered by Czechs in 1945 and his Jewish wife was expelled. The history of the family is the basis of the book Habermanns Mühle by the author Josef Urban . The story was filmed by Juraj Herz in 2009 and won first prize at the Jewish World Film Festival in 2010.
