Libice nad Cidlinou is a municipality and village in the Central Bohemian Region of the Czech Republic. It has about 1,300 inhabitants. It is one of the oldest settlements in Bohemia. Libice nad Cidlinou is located 5 km southeast of Pod?brady at the confluence of the Cidlina and Elbe rivers.


Libice emerged in the 9th century as the capital fort (gord) of the Slavnik family. They were of possible White Croat origin, and their lands were part of White Croatia. Archaeological digs begun in the nineteenth century show that the material culture was highly developed by the end of the first millennium AD. Libice began as a castle, and fortifications and the ruins of a stone church have survived to the present day. In 995 Libice was stormed by Bohemian Duke Boleslaus II (P?emyslid) and the Vr?ovci clan, who killed most of the Slavnik family and annexed Libice to Prague. Adalbert and Radim survived by taking refuge in land of the Polans under rule of Boleslaw I.
