Napajedla (Zlín Region, Czech Republic)
Napajedla (Napajedl, Napayerle, Napeürl) was a market town (1955 pop. 4,700; 2000 pop. 7,400) on the March River in Moravia. In the 16th century it was in the possession of the barons of Zierotin. The Hutterite chronicles state that "Sir Paul" in 1545 "gave the Hutterian Brethren two houses to try for a year." But conditions were not favorable, and they moved away at the end of the year.
