Do you originally come from the Czech or Slovak Republic? Which places have you visited there? And which cities? Maybe you were born in one of these countries, but you did not have the possibility to tour them. Maybe you are just about to visit them. Whatever your story is, we believe that you will appreciate information on cities and interesting places that deserve to be mentioned. One of the first places we will visit today is Chebsko – in German Egerland.

 

Forgotten Chebsko

Chebsko is located in the northwestern part of the Czech Republic. It originally belonged to Germany and became part of Czechoslovakia after World War I. As a border area it was part of Sudetenland and in 1938 it was occupied by Germany until the end of World War II. During the German occupation the region grew from 1000 km2 in 7000 km2 and today it includes cities such as Karlovy Vary (Karlsbad), Sokolov (Falkenau an der Eger), Kraslice (Graslitz), Chodov (Chodau), Marianske Lazne (Marienbad), Tachov (Tachau), and Domazlice (Taus).

Several cities have been added to this area, but certain places have been forgotten. Many villages were damaged or completely destroyed. Today, nobody knows about places like Boden, Devin, Mattelberg, Rathsam, Starost, Uvala or Zirnice; however, they will never be forgotten. PHDr. Jaromir Bohac, a historian from Cheb, prepared a new calendar for 2009 with the written materials, architecture and photographs of many forgotten places of Chebsko.

Which cities are worth of your visit? Make sure you visit Frantiskovy Lazne, Horni Lomany, Hroznatov, Cheb, Kralovske Porici, Kynsperk nad Ohri, Podhradí, Skalna or Sokolov. If you like castles and chateaus, make sure you visit Kacerov, Liba, Litov, Skalna, or Sokolov. Lovers of museums should definitely see Cheb’s museum dedicated to the town of Cheb and Chebsko, which is located in Pachelbelově house, in which was murdered Albrecht of Wallenstein in 1634.

Note: Did you know that the film Last Holiday, was filmed in Karlovy Vary in the Grandhotel Pupp?

Frantiskovy Lazne

Frantiskovy Lazne

Chebsko se nachazi v severozapadni casti ceske republiky. Puvodne patrilo Nemecku a stalo se soucasti Ceskoslovenska az po 1. svetove valce. Jakozto pohranicni oblast, bylo soucasti Sudetu a v roce 1938 bylo obsazeno Nemeckem az do konce 2. svetove valky. Behem okupace Nemeckem se tato oblast rozrostla od 1000 km2 do 7000 km2 a obsahovala mesta jako Karlovy Vary (Karlsbad), Sokolov (Falkenau an der Eger), Kraslice (Graslitz), Chodov (Chodau), Marianske Lazne (Marienbad), Tachov (Tachau) a Domazlice (Taus).

 

Nekoli mest bylo pridano do teto oblasti, ale nektera mista byla zapomenuta. Mnoho obci bylo ponicenych a nebo kompletne znicenych. Mista jako Boden, Devin, Mattelberg, Rathsam, Starost, Uval a nebo Zirnice dnes nikdo asi nezna. Tyto oblasti ale nikdy nebudou zapomenuty. Chebsky historic PHDr. Jaromir Bohac pripravil novy kalendar pro rok 2009 s texty, architekturou a fotografiemi z mnoha zapomenutych oblasti Chebska.
