Location of Chabařovice in the Ústí nad Labem district

Chabařovice ( German  Karbitz ) is a town in Ústecký kraj in the Czech Republic and belongs to the Okres Ústí nad Labem .

Geographical location

Chabařovice is located in northern Bohemia seven kilometers northwest of the city center of Ústí nad Labem ( Aussig ) on the Ždírnický potok ( Sernitz ).


Chabařovice Town Hall

The place at the foot of the southern roof of the Ore Mountains was first mentioned in 1352 as Kagrnitz and at that time was a parish village in the Riesenburg rule .

In 1426, halfway to Türmitz on the hill Na Běhání (Bihana Mountain), the battle of Aussig between the Hussites and German knights took place, in which Andreas Prokop defeated the numerically superior crusaders and then plundered and went to Aussig .

At the end of the 15th century, the place name changed to Karbitz . Karbitz had had town charter at least since 1520 and also had the right to brew beer. The right to use a city coat of arms and seal was granted in 1549 by the Bohemian and Roman-German King Ferdinand I. The inhabitants of the city were predominantly arable citizens . After the end of the Thirty Years' War, Karbitz experienced its heyday. In 1697 a city fire destroyed large parts of Karbitz. During the Napoleonic Wars, the city suffered severe damage in the Battle of Kulm .

When lignite mining began in 1740 , it changed the landscape and the character of the city. In 1774 the first lignite union was established. The change from mining in coal pits to open-cast mining meant that the places south of the city were devastated and Chabařovice became a miners' settlement. In 1858 Karbitz received a station on the Aussig-Teplitz Railway . The first mass strike in Bohemia took place in Karbitz in 1882. Karbitz was connected to Aussig by a tram from 1928 to 1964 . From the middle of the 19th century, Karbitz was the seat of the Karbitz District Court ( Karbitz judicial district ) or part of the Aussig district .

After the First World War , the German-populated city was added to the newly created Czechoslovakia in 1919 . According to the Munich Agreement , the city belonged to the district of Aussig in the Reichsgau Sudetenland , administrative district of Aussig , of the German Reich from 1938 to 1945 . After the end of the Second World War , the German population was expelled .

The opencast mine made it necessary to relocate the railway line, which used to lead past Karbitz to the west via Wicklitz and then to the east around the city. In 1997 the lignite mining was stopped, after the end of the recultivation , the 2.5 km long lake "Milada", which was opened to the public in 2015 , became the remaining hole . It has an area of ​​240 hectares and is used for local recreation. Part of the demolished village of Wicklitz lies in the lake.

In addition to an outdoor swimming pool, Chabařovice has a car campsite. The route of the D8 motorway Prague - Dresden runs two kilometers east of the city . There are several medium-sized companies in the city.
