Doksy

4.4
Doksy is a town in the Czech Republic. It has about 5,000 inhabitants. It lies on the shores of Lake Mácha, and so it is a summer vacation resort. The surroundings are densely forested and Bezděz Castle atop the mountain of the same name dominates the local landscape. Many rock groups are also to be seen nearby.EtymologyA hypothesis claims that the Czech name of the town comes from a Celtic word dogs probably meaning swamps or water surface. The German name Hirschberg am See means deer hill by lake. A deer is even seen on the coat of arms of the town (see to the right).HistoryThe town was established along with the nearby Bezděz Castle by the king Ottokar II of Bohemia in 1264.Until 1918, HIRSCHBERG IN BÖHMEN was part of the Austrian monarchy (Austria side after the compromise of 1867), in the DAUBA (DUBÁ) district, one of the 94 Bezirkshauptmannschaften in Bohemia.In 1938, it was occupied by the Nazi army as one of the municipalities in Sudetenland. The German-speaking population was expelled in 1945 (see the Beneš decrees) and replaced by Czech settlers.
