HISTORY OF SCHOOL
The historical school building was designed to suit the demands of modern education at the end of the nineteenth century. Jan Neff, an affluent entrepreneur and generous educational patron from Lipník nad Bečvou, was the initiator of the idea of founding the school. The neo-renaissance building has been serving educational purposes since 1898. Originally, natural sciences were taught there. The tradition of providing education in civil engineering started in 1953. Since then, almost half from more than 7 300 graduates have finished their university studies. Many of our former students have reached high positions in the field and received recognition.
LIPNÍK NAD BEČVOU
The school is located in Lipník nad Bečvou. Lipník is an ancient town with about 8.5 thousand inhabitants, situated in the Olomouc Region of the Czech Republic. The first mention of the town comes from the 13th century, but very likely, the first settlement in this place was even older. To this day, the town has preserved its medieval core with historic buildings, surrounded by fortification walls. Because of its historic uniqueness, the town is an urban conservation area protected by law. An important landmark of the town is the castle Helfštýn located nearby.
The town offers many leisure time activities. Lipník, nicknamed as the “blacksmith town”, organizes many cultural events. Moreover, the surrounding hills and the cycle path along the river Bačva provide many opportunities for sports activities – hiking, cycling or in-line skating.
