Fren?tát pod Radho?t?m (Czech pronunciation: ['fr?n?ta:t 'pod rad?o?c?m]; German: Frankstadt) is a town in Nový Ji?ín District in the Moravian-Silesian Region of the Czech Republic. It has about 11,000 inhabitants. The centre of the town is historically significant and is protected by law as an Urban monument zone.

It lies under the Moravian-Silesian Beskids Range. The town is an important holiday resort in both summer and winter.

History

The town was likely first settled between 1293 and 1316. The Thirty Years' War affected the town severely, as it was burned down in 1626, and occupied by the Swedes in 1646. The plague also affected the town. In the 17th century, the town's economy grew, possibly due to being colonized by the Wallachians. The town obtained the official title of town in 1781. In World War II, the town was occupied by the Axis, but was liberated on May 6, 1945 by the Soviet Union.[2]

On 13 February 2013, a 57-year-old man, Antonín Bla?ek, attempted to blow up a block of flats after having been ordered to vacate the flat in which he lived that had been foreclosed by creditors. He first blocked both exits from the building, and then removed and opened the main gas supply into the building's corridor. Interrupted, Bla?ek set the gas on fire before it could spread throughout the whole building. The explosion and subsequent fire, however, were large enough to demolish part of the building, killing Bla?ek and five other people immediately and wounding eleven others, one of whom died on 17 February 2015. The heavily-damaged block of flats had to be demolished in its entirety.[3]
