Description

Horní Studénky is a village and municipality (obec) in Šumperk District in the Olomouc Region of the Czech Republic. The municipality covers an area of 7.24 square kilometres (2.80 sq mi), and has a population of 348 (as at 28 August 2006). Horní Studénky lies approximately 12 kilometres (7 mi) west of Šumperk, 52 km (32 mi) north-west of Olomouc, and 172 km (107 mi) east of Prague.

Etymology

The name is probably derived from Czech name for springs (studénky). The adjectivum "Horní" (Upper) was created later to make it more recognizable from another close settlement also called Studénky which holds the name "Dolní" (Lower) today.

Historical names

The village was called Studenky, Studinky or Studynky.

History

The first note about the village comes from 1518, but the village is probably older because a note from 1531 refers to a parish church, and parish churches were situated in locally older settlements. It is speculated that original village's name was Odendorf and was later renamed for unknown reason.
