Drahobuz (German Drahobus ) is a municipality in the Czech Republic. It is located 14 kilometers east of Litoměřice and belongs to the Okres Litoměřice .


The village is located at the confluence of the Studený potok in the Úštěcký potok. State road 269 between Dubá and Vrutice runs through Drahobuz .

Neighboring towns are Břehoryje and Lada in the north, Strážiště in the northeast, Vědlice in the east, Střížovice in the southeast, Malešov in the south, Vrutice in the southwest, Hrušovany, Trnová and Libínky in the west and Jištěrpy in the northwest.


Drahobuz was first mentioned in a document in 1374. At that time there was a fortress in the place , which, like Verneřice , was owned by Petr Srša von Drahobuz until 1378 . The family then moved to western Bohemia in the Nebílovy area , where they called themselves Nebílovský von Drahobuz. In the 15th century there were several changes of ownership and in 1483 the Berka von Dubá acquired the place. In 1542 Drahobuz came to the Dubanský von Duban, who also owned Liběšice .

Around 1575 the fortress was converted into a renaissance castle and in 1629 the rule was sold to Heinrich von Nostitz on Liboch . From 1669 Drahobuz belonged to Count Kinsky and in 1760 Franz Josef Pachta von Rayowa bought Drahobuz. After Jacob Veit had acquired the rule in 1801, he added it to Liběchov . After the abolition of patrimonial Drahobuz became an independent municipality in 1848.

In 1877 the Veit family sold the estate to the Berlin banker Hermann Goldschmidt. In 1879 the castle was demolished and a simple, unadorned building was erected in its place. In 1930 380 people lived in the village, 365 of them Germans.
