?áslav (Czech pronunciation: ['t?a:slaf]; German: Tschaslau) is a town in eastern part of Central Bohemian Region of the Czech Republic. It has about 10,000 inhabitants.

History

The history of ?áslav begins after the year 800 with the founding of a citadel and settlement called Hrádek. Near Hrádek, a new town with a huge square was founded by King P?emysl Otakar II in 1250. In 1421, Bohemian parliament debated in ?áslav and voted in a new Hussite government.

During the Thirty Years' War, in 1639 and 1642, ?áslav was devastated and burnt down by Swedish troops. In 1751 ?áslav became the centre of region (county). ?áslav Museum, one of the oldest regional museums in Bohemia was founded in 1864. In 1910, part of the cranium of famous Hussite general Jan ?i?ka z Trocnova was discovered in ?áslav parish church.

Synagogue

The synagogue was built between 1899 and 1900 in Moorish style, designed by architect Wilhelm Stiassny. It was used until 1939 by the local Jewish community, which was then almost totally wiped out during The Holocaust. After World War II the abandoned building saw use as a warehouse, and then (between 1969-1989) as a gallery. In 1989, however, it was returned to the Jewish Community in Prague and has recently been restored.

Sport

?áslav is sometimes called a town of majorettes, because of the local team, which won medals from Czech and world competitions.

There is a football team, FK ?áslav, located in the town.

Notable is the Athletics Club ?áslav. Two of its most known sportswomen are Ludmila Formanová and Jarmila Kratochvílová, both World Champions in 800 m sprint.[2]

Air base

To the northeast of the town, there is an active air base of the Czech Air Force.[3]
