Bludov ( _de. Blauda) is a spa village in the Olomouc Region of the Czech Republic. The village is an important rail junction and there is an important crossroads.Bludov is named for the town's founder, Blud z Bludova.


Bludov was established in the 13th century by Blud z Bludova. It was the only Czech village in the German Šumperk district. Blud z Bludova's son built the castle on the slope of the Háj hill.

In the 15th century, Bludov became a possession of Tunkl z Brníčka, who built six big ponds near the village. Tunkl’s serfs had to work hard, and rebelled as a result. Tunkl was murdered and his ponds was abandoned. There is a legend that the devil makes Tunkl plow the ponds.
*In the half of 15th century, the Bludov castle was destroyed in the Czech-Hungary Wars.
*In the 16th century, Bludov became possession of a Žerotín noble, who built a château, which is owned by Žerotíns.
