Jevíčko (Czech pronunciation: [ˈjɛviːtʃko]; German: Gewitsch) is a town in Svitavy District, in the Pardubice Region of the Czech Republic. The town has a population of 2,800.


Jevíčko was part of the Great Moravian Empire in the 9th and early 10th century, and at various times was under the control of one or the other of Boskovice or Olomouc. In 1258, Jevíčko received its city charter, from Ottokar, then ruler of Moravia. In 1291, his son Wenceslaus II gave Jevíčko jurisdiction over the thirteen surrounding villages.


Jevíčko is located above the Jevíčka River in a wide valley which cuts north-south through the highlands of the Central Moravian Carpathians.
