Location of Luka in the Česká Lípa district

Luka (German Luken ) is a municipality in the Okres Česká Lípa in the Liberec region in the north of the Czech Republic .

The farming village is 6 km south of Doksy (Hirschberg am See) on the plateau between Daubaer Schweiz and the Kummergebirge . The striking Velký Bezděz (Bösig) rises 5 km to the northeast with its castle complex that can be seen from afar.


The first written records about the Slavic settlement date from the beginning of the 15th century. Luka was parish in Bezděz , and the Prague Archbishop Zbynko Zajíc von Hasenburg confirmed in 1410 the Augustinian Canons on the Karlshof their rights for Luka. However, the Augustinians did not own the entire village; two farms were obliged to serve at Bösig Castle and were eventually sold.

During the 16th century, Luka came to rule Bösig in Hirschberg .

To the southwest of Luka, on the edge of the mountain ranges of the Daubaer Schweiz, was the old Týn fort, which last belonged to the Waldsteiners and around which the settlement of Týn arose. In 1912 Luken had 30 houses, and in the associated Thein there were still 14 houses around the Meierhof. The Belsko houses on the Thomasberg (Tomášův vrch) above the Hausker Grund also belonged to hatches.

In the village there is a grocery store and a small pub; Companies are not resident. There is a bus to Doksy four times a day on weekdays.
