The town was created in the time of the big colonisation of northeast Moravia and located near the well known Amber Road, important trading route connecting Mediterranean areas with Baltic sea coasts.
Through years Fulnek was a manor owned by several noble families. During a period of prosperity, acting of members of Unity of the Brethren provided high development of education. A very important representative was John Amos Comenius, who has spent there three most beautiful years of his life – as he said himself. After the defeat of Bohemian Revolt (in 1621) he had to escape from the town.
