Chyška (German Chisten , 1939–1945: Chischka ) is a district of Úsobí in the Czech Republic . It is located two and a half kilometers east of Úsobí and belongs to the Okres Havlíčkův Brod .


Chyška is located in the Bohemian-Moravian Highlands at the eastern foot of the Máselený Kopec (634 m) above the valley of the Žabinec brook. The Bukovec (607 m) rises to the east and the Kosovský vrch (682 m) to the southwest. West is the forest area Farský les ( Pfarrholz ).

Neighboring towns are Úhořilka , Kochánov and Okrouhlička in the north, Skřivánek in the northeast, Studénka, Bukovec and Štoky in the east, Petrovický Mlýn in the southeast, Petrovice in the south, Maliní, Kosovy and Skalka in the southwest, Úsobí in the west and Chwálkov in the north.


The first written mention of the village belonging to the possessions of the Seelau monastery took place in 1436, when King Sigismund, with the consent of the abbot who fled to Iglau, transferred the orphaned monastery property to the protection and administration of Nikolaus Trčka von Lípas . The name of the place is derived from the old Czech term Chyše (Kate, hut). After Georg von Podiebrad had assigned the monastery property to the Trčka von Lípa in 1458 in the land tablet, Burian Trčka von Lípa established the Jenikau dominion . In 1601 the Trčka Jenikau sold the Jihlava citizen Matthias Stubegg Knight of Königstein ( Matyáš Štubik z Kynigštejna ). When the inheritance was divided between his sons, Chyška came to the newly established Pollerskirchen rule in 1606 .

After the abolition of patrimonial Chýška formed a municipality in the Deutschbrod district from 1850 . The name Chyška has been used since 1920 . In 1976 it was incorporated into Úsobí. In 1991 the place had 105 inhabitants. In 2001 the village consisted of 39 houses in which 85 people lived.
