Dobřejovice (German Dobrejowitz , also Manderscheid ) is a municipality in the Czech Republic . It is located six kilometers west of Říčany and belongs to the Okres Praha-východ .


Dobřejovice is located at the transition from the Central Bohemian Table to the Central Bohemian Uplands on Dobřejovický potok, a right tributary to the Botič . The D 1 motorway leads past to the east, and the 101 state road from Jesenice to the south to exit 11 "Jesenice" and to Říčany . In the north-west lies the Průhonice Castle Park.

Neighboring towns are Čestlice in the north, Nupaky in the northeast, Kuří in the east, Doubravice and Modletice in the southeast, Herink in the south, Osnice in the west and Průhonice in the northwest.


The first written mention of the place and the fortress was made in 1309 as the seat of Bohuslav from Dobřejovice. The lords of Dobřejovice held the festivities until the end of the 14th century. In 1391, Jindřich von Dobřejovice was the last named landlord of this family. He was followed by Ojíř von Očedělice, who sold the fort in 1472 to Oldřich von Konipas. Other owners were Václav von Tedražice and Oldřich Zápský von Zápy. He sold the property to Georg Moschauer von Valdov in 1549. Until 1627, the Moschauer family owned Dobřejovice, after which it belonged to Vit von Rzava for fifty years. From 1677 Odolen von Věrník, Vojtěch Voračický, Christoph von Mitrowitz and in 1693 Dorota Přehořovská followed. From her the goods came to the Waldsteiners and in 1710 to the Sternbergers . The villages of Herink , Kamenice , Psáry , Sulice and Těptín belonged to the Dobřejovice manor. In 1763, the Prague Archbishop Johann Moritz Gustav von Manderscheid-Blankenheim acquired the rule for 217,000 guilders. The bishop gave the village the new name Manderscheid . After his death he bequeathed the rule to the Archdiocese of Prague .

On October 7, 1848, farmers in the village solemnly buried agricultural implements on the Modletice hill that they had previously used for labor. After the abolition of patrimonial Dobřejovice formed a municipality in the Karlín district from 1850. With the independence, the community also abandoned the name Manderscheid, which was little accepted by the residents, and continued to be used as a German name alongside Dobrejowitz . In 1864 the large pond on the northern edge of the village was drained and most of the area was drained. As a result, the mill also went out. From 1878 the parish belonged to the Royal Vineyards District and from 1920 to the Owl District . Under Archbishop Franziskus von Paula Schönborn , the goods in Dobrejowitz were attached to Dolní Břežany at the end of the 19th century . Bishop Schönborn leased the castle brewery to Václav Novotny in 1886. Later the Jewish businessman Nathan Eisler leased the brewery. In 1923 the football club SK Průhonice was founded, whose headquarters were in Dobřejovice. From 1928 the municipality belonged to the Říčany district . The Eisler family owned the brewery until the closure in 1948. The castle was also leased to tenants belonged from 1922 to 1936, the first Czech sugar industry AG in Modřany . During the German occupation from 1939 to 1945, the community again bore the German name Manderscheid .

From 1950 weddings took place in the castle. In 1953 the dam of the pond "Skalník" broke during a flood. The castle chapel was desecrated in 1957. Dobřejovice has belonged to Okres Praha-východ since 1961 . In 2006 the municipality received a coat of arms.
