Origin/meaning

The arms show a golden grape symbolising the growing of vines in this area. The first mention of Teopilic" dates to 1114, the popular explanation being a reference to German "tobl" (valley, gorge). however, in reality the name probably derives from the Slavic "toplica" for "swamp, marshland".
