Přerov (German Prerau ) is a Czech city on the Bečva in the Olomouc region with about 47,679 inhabitants (2008) . Přerov is located about 22 km southeast of Olomouc . In the past, the city was an important hub and the heart of Moravia .
The town of Přerov was first mentioned in 1141 and was elevated to the status of a royal town in 1256 . The castle belonged to the influential von Zierotin family . Johann Amos Comenius attended the Latin school in Přerov, of which he was director from 1614.
After the Battle of White Mountain in 1620, a phase of decline began due to the following war damage and the general depopulation of the country after the Thirty Years War. In 1636 Wallenstein's brother-in-law, Charles the Elder of Žerotín, died here .
With the construction of the Kaiser-Ferdinand-Nordbahn from Vienna to Prerau, the city's renewed upswing began. During the time of Austria-Hungary Prerau was the seat of the district administration of the Prerau district.
