Tetín is a municipality and village in Beroun District in the Central Bohemian Region of the Czech Republic. It is about 2 kilometres far away from the city Beroun and it is above the Czech river Berounka. As of 2012, it has a population of 744 people.
Historically, Tetín belongs to the oldest villages in Czech Republic. The place was already inhabited during the paleolithic period. Archaeologists found that the beginnings of the town date back to the 10th century, but they are connected with the mythological figure Teta, the daughter of the mythological Duke Krok, who was supposed to have lived earlier than that. In the 10th century, there was a wooden building there belonging to the dutchess St. Ludmila, who was murdered in 921. In the 11th and 12th century, the place was a home to the administrative district of Tetín that governed the whole area of Podbrdsko. Tetín is also referenced in the Vyšehrad document.
In the year 1288, Tetín was the residence of the royal hunter and to the end of the thirteenth century, the castle was rebuilt as a residence for the royal bastards of the Přemyslid line. In 1321, the Tetín castle was held by Štěpán from Tetín, who later sold it to Emperor Karel IV. The latter then joined the Tetín estate to Karlštejn. In 1422, during the Hussite wars, the castle was destroyed and the place was heavily damaged in the 20th century by limestone mines. The Czech poet Jaroslav Seifert dedicated two of his poems to Tetín.
