Čakovice (7)

The municipality of Čakovice, called Tschakowitz by the Germans, is about 6 km from Štětí to which it is now integrated. In 1888, 266 German residents in 52 houses lived in the village and today, there are about 60 residents.

 Important buildings

The Vlk family from Kvítkov built a new fortress in Čakovice, probably around 1535 - 1545, however, the fortress perished after less than 90 years during the Thirty Years' War. The tall granary building which was demolished in 2003 maybe concealed the remnants of the former fortress. On the village square is a wonderful late baroque chapel devoted to St. Jan Nepomucký and St.Paul, constructed by the municipality at the end of the 17th century with the help of the then owner of the manor, the Countess of Martinice. The chapel burnt down in the mid 19th century and was rebuilt in 1884. In Čakovice, there are many folk houses, either timbered or bricked, with wooden gables and semi-timbered floors. Some homesteads have entrance gates with sun motives. Interest in local recreation increased after construction of a large water retaining reservoir on the eastern side of the municipality (1996 - 1998). The total area of the local fishpond is four hectares. The fishpond is a part of the revitalization programme for the Obrtka river basin and offers fishing opportunities in addition to limited swimming.
