The district town Trutnov is situated in the slopes of Krkonoše (Giant
Mountains) in a valley of the river Úpa. Trutnov, "The gate of Krkonoše"
is also a starting point of many marked footpaths in the whole area under
Giant Mountains (called Podkrkonoší). Origins of the town are supported
by evidence in writing since the year 1260. A legend about its foundation
moves its origins to the 11th century, when the legendary knight Trut gained
a victorious fight over dragon.
