When they come there, they are surprised. Pardubice is mainly the town of sport, culture and history. History The first written records of Pardubice are from the late 13th century it was granted "town" status in 1340. In the late 15th century Pardubice was bought by Pernstejn family, who began an extensive program of construction. They rebuilt the castle into the early renaissance chateau, which became their residence. The largest expansion of the city began in 1845 because of the beginning of the railway traffic through Pardubice to Olomouc and Prague. It was also the start of great industrialization.
