Municipality characteristics

First mention of Mikulovice dates back to the second half of the 13th century. The valley of the river Bělá had certainly been settled much earlier than the first historical written records show. From at least the 10th century the area of the present Mikulovice was of interest to precious metal prospectors. Gold was obtained from Bělá and Olešnice river alluviums. Relics of these activities can still be seen. Even later people went back to gold mining here. Of particular interest are relics of of so-called "finger mining" on the way from Mikulovice to Ondřejovice as you pass through the area known as "Zlatý Roh" along the Olešnice stream. In 1907 Mikulovice was promoted to the status of town. Part of the village is the settlement Buchberk, which was renamed Bukovec. In 1960, the previously independent villages, Kolnovice and Široký Brod with their settlements, were attached to the village. Mikulovice lies along the river Bělá (average height above sea level is 320 m) in the lowest and widest part of the valley. From the right the Olešnice stream joins the river Bělá which then flows into Poland towards Nysa in the east. The village lies along the main road from Jeseník in the north-east to the Mikulovice border crossing into Poland. In the village there are roads which turn towards Zlaté Hory and towards Vidnava. Following the same direction as the main road the railway line runs from Jeseník via Głuchołazy in Poland back to the Czech Republic in Jindřichov and then continues onward to Krnov.
