Litomyšl is a town and municipality, former bishopric and Latin Catholic titular see in the Pardubice Region of Bohemia, in the Czech Republic.The château-type castle complex in the town centre is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Litomyšl is located 136km east of Prague.HistoryIt takes it name from the Litoměřici, one of over a dozen West Slavic tribes which settled in the Czech lands from the sixth century.The eastern Bohemian town of Litomyšl emerged in the 13th century on the site of an older fortified settlement on the Trstenice path - an important trading route linking Bohemia and Moravia.From 1344.04.30 till its 1474 suppression (during the Hussite Wars) it was the seat of a Latin Catholic Diocese of Leitomischl / Litomyšl / Lutomislen(sis) (Latin adjective), until its territory was merged back into the (meanwhile Metropolitan Arch)Diocese of Prague, but in 1970 it was nominally restored as Titular bishopric.Until 1918, Leitomischl–Litomyšl (older German name Leutomischl) was part of the Austrian monarchy (Austria side after the compromise of 1867), head of the district with the same name, one of the 94 Bezirkshauptmannschaften or "okresní hejtmanství" in Bohemia. The German population was expelled as a result of the Benes Decrees in 1945. Litomysl is in Pardubice Region.
