Příbor (Czech pronunciation:

German: Freiberg in Mähren) is a town in the Moravian-Silesian Region of the Czech Republic. It has about 8,800 inhabitants (as of 2004).

It is located in northeastern Moravia, surrounded by the foothills of the Moravian-Silesian Beskids.

Vriburch in the Margraviate of Moravia was first mentioned in a 1251 deed, issued by the Přemyslid margrave Ottokar II. The estates passed to the Bishops of Olomouc in the 14th century. Saint John Sarkander attended the local parish school from 1589; in 1694 a Piarist gymnasium was established, whereafter Příbor developed to a centre of education.

Birthplace of Sigmund Freud

The town is notable as the birthplace, on 6 May 1856, of Sigmund Freud, the founder of psychoanalysis.
