In the Moravian Walachia - Lachia boundary, it is the last village that belongs purely to Lachia (Lašsko). Its dominant is one of the largest castles in Moravia, which was founded in the first half of the 13th century, under the rule of King Přemysl Otakar I. The village was made famous by the composer Leoš Janáček (1854-1928). In the last year of his life, he thus spoke about his place of birth (in the article "Moje Lašsko - My Lachia): "Beautiful landscape, quiet people, soft vernacular, as if butter were being cut. " So much for the landscape around Hukvaldy, which forms the foothills of Beskydy - the westernmost part of the Carpathian Mountains.
