Tučín (German Tutschin , formerly Tuczin ) is a municipality in the Czech Republic . It is located five kilometers east of Přerov and belongs to the Okres Přerov .


Tučín is located in the Podbeskydská to pahorkatina ( Vorbeskidenhügelland associated) Záhoří ridge at the foot of Tučíner Travertinkuppe in a carrier formed from the stream Tučínský brook reason. The Plazy ( Blaseberg , 315 m) rise to the northeast , the Nivky (265 m) to the south and the Tmeň (260 m) to the southwest.

It is believed that the travertine dome and the surrounding mineral springs were visited by humans as early as the Paleolithic . This thesis is based on the fact that the nearby travertine dome , on which the Přerov Horní náměstí ( Upper Ring ) is located today, was inhabited in the Upper Paleolithic and the Tučín dome offered similar conditions. However, so far only a single Paleolithic flint stone tool has been found. Further finds are a jadeite ax from the Neolithic Age and a Late Bronze Age cemetery from the Lausitz culture .

The first documentary mention of the place took place in 1351 in the Olomouc country table , when Tobiáš and Beneš von Štrálek sold their four Huben land in Tuczin to the brothers Jan and Drslav von Krawarn . In 1371 Vok von Krawarn exchanged the village of Pavlovice , the four hubs in Tučín and other property in Prusínky near Ješek Hromada von Horka for the Paršovice , Valčovice and Rakov estates . Tučín was always divided between different landlords. From the 14th century on, they included the Lords of Náklo . Čeněk von Náklo, who bought the Tučín manor in 1381, used the Tučín title from 1389 . His descendants held their stake for over a century. In the 15th century, Viktorín Bavor von Holovice sold his half of Tučín for 100 shock groschen under the testimony of King George of Podiebrad to Wilhelm von Pernstein . In 1512 the village was called Tuczinie . The brothers Jaroslav and Vratislav von Pernstein sold their share of Tučín to Půta von Ludanitz in 1554 with the rule Helfenstein - Leipnik . At the beginning of the 17th century Tučín was divided into three parts; in addition to the shares of the domains Domaželice and Želatovice there was also a free court. In 1636 the estate of Charles the Elder of Zerotein also included eight subjects in Tučín. In 1670 Karel Vojtěch Světlík von Ghes owned a share with a subject. In 1743 a windmill was built. 1795 bought Anton Alexander von Magnis together with the rule Želatovice on the corresponding share in Tučín.

After the abolition of patrimonial Tučín / Tutschin formed from 1850 a municipality in the Kremsier district administration . At that time the village had 375 inhabitants. In 1853 a great fire destroyed half the village. 28 residents died in the cholera epidemic of 1866. Tučín has been part of the Prerau District since 1880 . In 1900, 510 people lived in the 83 houses in the village. The windmill was destroyed by a windpipe in 1910. In 1913 Tučín was connected to the electricity network. In 1917 Anton Franz von Magnis sold his goods Přerov and Želatovice including Tučín to the Moravian Agricultural Bank. When a well was being dug in 1935, a coal deposit was discovered; Investigations have shown that it is only a weak, unmountable pitch coal deposit. In 1940 an outdoor pool was built on the travertine dome, which is fed with mineral water from the travertine quarry at 21 ° C. In 1950 the place consisted of 102 houses and had 497 inhabitants. Tučín was incorporated into Želatovice in 1976 . The travertine mining stopped in the 1980s. After the Velvet Revolution , Tučín formed its own municipality again in 1990.
