St Bartholomew"s Church on Republic Square in Pardubice
"Pardubice" (pronounced ; ) is the capital city of the Pardubice Region and lies on the river Elbe, 65 miles east of Prague. Pardubice has an antique centre square and old town, with many restaurants that stay open until late in the evening. There is an old Tower and a recently renovated Castle. Factories include the Synthesia chemical factory (manufacturer of Semtex, a plastic explosive), an oil refinery Paramo, a heavy machinery factory and an electronic equipment plant.

The Czech Open Chess Tournament is the biggest in Europe, with roughly 1200 players from all over the world competing in the main groups, and many side-events such as a team championship, a Rubik"s cube competition and a Go-tournament. Pardubice is home to one of the top hockey teams in the Czech Extraliga, HC Pardubice (former Tesla). The local hockey club has bred international stars such as Vladimír Martinec, Dominik Hašek, Otakar Janecký, Aleš Hemský, Jan Bulis (all natives of Pardubice) and Milan Hejduk. Former NBA player Jiří Welsch is also a native of the city.

istor
The area had a monastery beginning in the early 13th century, and the city was founded . Arnošt of Pardubice, the first archbishop of Prague, was born in Pardubice in 1297. Since 1874, the Great Pardubice Steeplechase ("Velká Pardubická") horse race has taken place every autumn (second Sunday in October).

The refinery at Pardubice was repeatedly bombed during the Oil Campaign of World War II, and forced labor was provided by a concentration camp. The Tesla electronics manufacturer operated from 1921-1989, and the Foxconn factory was established in June 2000.
