The Pardubice region is one of the 14 regions of Czechia. The capital city and the seat of the regional authorities is Pardubice.
The regions were established as higher-level territorial self-governing units in order to decentralise and bring the decision-making of affairs concerning the regions closer to the local people living there. Their creation was approved by the government in 1997 and the self-governing powers were enacted by the Act on Regions no. 129/2000 Sb.
These regions were formed on 1 January 2000, and they first began their activities after the first elections to Regional Councils that were held on 12 December 2000.
