German  Kremsier  

      city, south-central Czech Republic, on the Morava River, northeast of Brno. The city dates from 1110, after which it was acquired by the bishops of Olomouc. It is best known historically because the Austrian constituent assembly used it as a refuge during the Vienna revolt (1848–49). In Kroměříž the assembly prepared the short-lived Kremsier constitution, designed to provide for the autonomy of national cultures under a liberal dynasty in Vienna. The city's historic buildings include the former summer residence of the archbishop of Olomouc (built as a Baroque castle) with archiepiscopal archives, the Gothic Church of St. Maurice (1260), and the 18th-century Piarist Church of St. John.

      Kroměříž lies at the southern edge of the Haná, a fertile agricultural region of barley, wheat, and sugar beets. In the city, generators, gasoline engines, and footware are manufactured. Pop. (2007 est.) 29,038.
