Vrbka (German Wrbka , 1939-1945 Weiden ) is a municipality in the Czech Republic . It is located eight kilometers south of Kroměříž and belongs to the Okres Kroměříž .


Vrbka is located in the northeastern foothills of the Mars Mountains on the edge of the Chřiby nature park in the basin of a small tributary to the Trňák. The Křiby (331 m) rises to the northeast, the Jámy (299 m) to the east and the Kula (391 m) to the south.

Neighboring towns are Velké Těšany and Bařice in the north, Chlum and Karolín in the northeast, Sulimov in the east, Nová Dědina in the southeast, Tabarky in the south, Lubná in the southwest, Lhotka and Soběsuky in the west and Zlámanka, Trňák, Šelešovice and Drahlov in the northwest.


Archaeological finds prove that the area was settled during the Great Moravian Empire .

Vrbka emerged in the 14th century when the forests on the northern edge of the Mars Mountains were settled. The first written mention of the village took place in 1408. In 1422, Vrbka was mentioned in a certificate from Emperor Sigismund about the pledging of the Buchlov rule as an accessory. The noble families of Lamberg and Thun-Hohenstein were among the most important owners of the place .

After the abolition of patrimonial Wrbka formed a community in the district administration Kroměříž from 1850. The inhabitants of the village lived from agriculture. The school was built in 1883. The current place name Vrbka has been used since 1924. In 1961 it was incorporated into Sulimov . Between 1968 and 1975 the cemetery in Vrbka, which is also responsible for Sulimov and Karolín, was expanded and a mourning hall was built. Since the school closed in 1978, primary school students have been taught in Sulimov. At the beginning of 1993 Vrbka broke away from Sulimov and formed its own community.
