Bratčice (German Bratschitz , older also Braterschitz (1223), Brachschitz (1358), Braschitz (1381)) is a municipality in the Středočeský kraj region , Czech Republic . The village is located seven kilometers south of Čáslav in the valley of the Čáslavka on the heights of the Tisá skála . It is one of the oldest settlements in the Okres Kutná Hora .


The place was first mentioned in writing in 1126. At the beginning of the 13th century the settlement belonged to Jan von Bratčice, who died in 1254 and was buried in the church of the Teutonic Order built by him. After his death, the Teutonic Knight Order became the owner of the settlement. The members of the order were driven out by the Hussites in 1418 . For a long time the owners changed in quick succession. After the class uprising of 1618 , the battle between the imperial army, led by Field Marshal Heinrich von Dampierre , and the rebels took place nearby at the beginning of the Thirty Years' War . During the retreat, the village was burned down. In 1642 knight Bernart Ignác Felix Šmerovský received the area, who made it flourish again through various measures. His son sold the property on. After further changes of ownership at the end of the 19th century, industry and crafts settled. However, from 1948 onwards, during the communist era, important political and administrative functions were relocated, as a result of which the community lost its former importance.
