Moravský Krumlov (Czech pronunciation: [ˈmorafskiː ˈkrumlof]; German: Mährisch Kromau) is a town in the Znojmo District, South Moravian Region, Czech Republic. It has about 6,023 inhabitants (2005 est.).
The town is named Moravský Krumlov ("Moravian Krumlov") to differentiate it from Český Krumlov ("Bohemian Krumlov"), which lies in South Bohemia.
Founded presumably in 1260 by Ottokar II of Bohemia, the town boasts quite a remarkable history, reaching its peak in the 16th century as the residence of the powerful Lords of Leipa, hereditary marshals to the kings of Bohemia. In 1622, the Krumlov château and the domain were acquired by the House of Liechtenstein.
On the last night of World War II (7 May 1945), it was heavily bombed by Soviet air forces. As a result, three quarters of the town lay in ruins. The château, the Augustinian monastery, All Saints Church, and St Florian Church were among the buildings that survived.
