The ancient town of Jihlava is one of the historic gems of the Czech Republic. It was founded in the period 1237 - 1239 by Wenceslas I, upon the discovery of silver lodes in the local ore. Downtown Jihlava is comprised of well-preserved houses of all period and styles dating as far back as the 14th and 15th centuries. In 1982, the historic heart of Jihlava - consisting of 582 buildings with 214 cultural artifacts of monumental value, thereof 70 monuments of 1st category - was declared a municipal historic preserve. Surrounded by more than 3 km of ancient walls, the historic heart of Jihlava is gradually regaining its original appearance, thanks to gradual restoration of individual structures. Jihlava today is an important administrative, commercial, industrial, and cultural center for the territory situated in the Northwest part of Southern Moravia. Upon the enactment of the amended constitutional law on independent organizational territories, already approved, Jihlava is to become the capital of the future region. Population of Jihlava 51 638. Population of the Jihlava District 108 906 (as of Dec. 31, 1999).
