Audio|Bystrice.ogg|Bystřice (Polish: Audio-nohelp|Bystrzyca.ogg|"Bystrzyca", German: "Bistrzitz") is a large village in Frýdek-Místek District, Moravian-Silesian Region, Czech Republic. It has a population of 5,173 (2006), Poles are 29.7% of the population. [cite web |url= http://www.czso.cz/sldb/sldb2001.nsf/obce/598062?OpenDocument |title= 2001 census data |accessdate= |author= |date= |work= |publisher= Czech Statistical Office ] It lies between the Silesian and Moravian-Silesian Beskids mountain ranges, in the historical region of Cieszyn Silesia. Hluchová River flows to the Olza River in the village.

Village was first mentioned in a written document in 1423 although it is probable that it has beginnings in the 14th century. Settlers have lived mainly off farming and pastures. After the construction of Třinec Iron and Steel Works in 1839, some of villagers went there working as workers.

Bystřice is one of the most Protestant villages in Cieszyn Silesia. Local Protestants built there a wooden church in 1587, which was eventually taken over by Catholics and later dismantled in 1897. In the place of this wooden church was later built a current Exaltation of the Cross Catholic wooden church. Lutherans built a wooden church in 1782 and current bricked one in 1811-1817. Also many traditional old wooden houses still remain in some parts of the village.
