Chcebuz 013

Chcebuz is one of the oldest villages in the Litoměřice district and the very first settlement in the Štětí region with reliable written records. A part of the local settlement including the church was donated by Duke Boleslav II in 993 to the Monastery in Břevnov. The local church is probably one of 20 churches constructed by order of Boleslav II in his Bohemian principality. German citizens referred to Chebus as Zebus.

VESELÍ village belongs to the settlement, called FRÖCHLICHSDORF by German citizens. Today, both locations are integrated into Štětí. Chcebuz underwent a boom in the late 19th century where there were 132 houses with 909 citizens living there. The citizens were primarily of German nationality. The number of residents currently stands at 190 - 200.

The main Chcebuz Street terminates in a haphazard oval-shaped village square containing the ruins of a former chateau and the administrative court on the north. To the west is the Empire-style parsonage and school building dated 1875. In the central area of the village is the main focal point, the Baroque-style church where the tower is largely exposed to the wide ranging region under Říp Mountain. The second focal point of the village offers a Baroque-style sculpture of St. Mary with St. Jan Nepomucký and St. Lawrence dated 1788. The sculpture is located in the church axis. The owner of the manor house, Count Huber Karel Pachta from Rájov funded a new construction of the church from 1781 - 1784 that is now regarded as an excellent Baroque-style architectonic feature. There are frescos by J. Kramolín on the church ceiling dated 1784. In 1566, a bell produced by famous Bohemian bell producer, Brikcí from Cimperk, was hung in the church. The second larger bell dates back to 1610. There were Czech captions on both bells. The original small cemetery was located around the castle bordered with a stone wall with plaster artwork on top. By the western church entrance, there is the tomb of Clary's Counts from Snědovice.
