Lukavec (German Lukawetz ) is a municipality in the Czech Republic. It is located three kilometers southeast of Lovosice on the Modla and belongs to the Okres Litoměřice .


The village is to the left of the Elbe on both sides of the Modla river. The D8 / European route 55 leads to the south-west , the place is located directly at the exit "Lovosice východ". State road 247 between Lovosice and Radovesice runs through Lukavec . The place has a train stop on the railway line Lovosice - Roudnice nad Labem .

To the north is the Lovosice industrial area, which was built on the site of the Prosmyky village. Neighboring towns are Nové Kopisty in the east, Keblice in the southeast, Siřejovice in the southwest, Sulejovice in the west and Lovosice in the northwest.


The place was first mentioned in a document in 1057 when the cathedral chapter of St. Stefan in Litoměřice was founded by Spytihněv II and was one of the 14 villages subject to the chapter.

Subsequently, part of Lukavec passed to various secular owners. Among them were the chaplains de Sulewicz on Čížkovice and Košťálov Castle until 1480 . They were followed by the Leitmeritz citizen Valentin Kuneš, who was given a coat of arms by Vladislav II in 1508. Kuneš von Lukavec, as he called himself from then on, built a fortress that perished in the Thirty Years War.

Kaspar Kaplirz de Sulewicz acquired the portion of the chapter; However, after his execution in 1621, this fell back to the clergy.

The other part of the village was divided again. A share went to the Boreč manor and then came to the Lovosice manor and the Schwarzenberg family . A baroque palace was built in this part. Wenzel Chotek von Chotkow sold another share to the city of Leitmeritz in 1721.

When the plague broke out at the end of the 17th century, the majority of the residents died. Until the abolition of patrimonial rule in 1848, the division into three parts continued, after which the Leitmeritzer, Lobositzer and cathedral chapter portions were combined into one community.

It was not until 1910 that grave crosses began to be erected in the cemetery, until then it was customary for sandstone gravestones to be erected. A sugar factory was built in the 1920s.
