The village of Třinec was founded in the 14th century, but the first written mention dates back to 1444. In the 16th century, Třinec came into the possession of the Mitmajers of Blogotic and remained in their ownership at the beginning of the following century. At that time the village had 24 homesteads. Iron was produced here as early as Roman times. In the 18th and 19th centuries, ore was mined in the surrounding area (the first deposit of a poor iron ore called teschenite was on Ostrý Vrch) and limestone, charcoal was burnt in the mills in the surrounding forests, and malleable iron was produced in special furnaces. In the first half of the 19th century, Třinec was still one of the many agricultural villages owned by the Těšín Chamber. An important event in the history of the village was the establishment of the Třinec Ironworks in 1839. The construction of the Košice-Bohumín railway in 1869-1871, followed by the rapid development of public institutions, was of fundamental importance for the development of the ironworks and thus the whole village.
1920 - Třinec was annexed to the Czech Republic on the basis of the peace agreement with Poland and the decision of the commission of ambassadors in the Belgian Spa.
In 1931 the village was promoted to a town.
Gradually, some neighbouring villages joined Třinec. Thanks to its civic and cultural amenities, the new centre of the town became the district of Lyžbice. On the slopes of Jahoda in the Dolní Líštná cadastre, the Sosna housing estate was built. An important part of the town is Oldřichovice, which is situated at the foot of Javorový (1032 m above sea level). Further south, below the slopes of Kozinec and Ostrý, lies Karpentná. In the narrow valley between Javorový and Ostrý is the village of Tyra, where a number of recreational centres and cottages have been built over the years.
As of 1st September 2018, Třinec became a statutory town.
