1380 - Establishment of a city council
As a consequence of the adoption of the Magdeburg Law from Wrocław in 1374, Prince Premyslaus I Noszak (1358-1410) purchased the magistrate by virtue of his diploma from 1380. In the light of the prince’s document, Peter, the current hereditary mayor of Ostrava, received Ostrava and the neighbouring Kończyce. The prince’s decision was of fundamental importance for the further development of Cieszyn. From that moment, the city was administered by a mayor supported by a three-man council. The oldest list of the Cieszyn city council is dated to 1388.
