Moravská Třebová (Czech pronunciation: ; German: Mährisch Trübau) is a town in the Svitavy District and lies in the Pardubice Region, Czech Republic. It has around 11,300 inhabitants.

Moravská Třebová is located on the Třebůvka River (German: Mährische Triebe) in the landscape of the "Schönhengstgau".

It was the largest German linguistic enclave within Bohemia and Moravia. Some locations were just some kilometers apart from the other German-speaking areas. Until the expulsion of the Germans in 1945/46 further to the Beneš decrees, it was exclusively inhabited by German speaking population. Between 1850 and 1960 Moravská Třebová has been a district town.
