Volyně

de: Wohlau
ru: Волине, Волыне

1325 Volyně Volyně (Wohlau) is located in the northern foothills of the Šumava (B÷hmerwald) mountains. Its origins go back to a stronghold near a ford on the Voly˛ka (Volinka) river. The village was first mentioned in 1271, but obtained the status of a town already in 1299.

The Czech architect Josef Niklas (1817–1877) was born in Volyně. One of his works is the town hall of Netolice.

 

[The German name of Volyně, Wohlau, is also the German name of Wołˇw in Lower Silesia, Poland]
