Location of Obrnice in the Most district

Obrnice (German Obernitz ) is a municipality in the Bohemian Central Mountains in Okres Most in ( Czech Republic ).


The first settlements can be identified as early as the Bronze Age . In 1282 it was first mentioned in writing in a deed of gift in which Obernitz is listed with a mill. In 1341 the village became the property of the Ossegg monastery . In 1420 the place was handed over to Nikolaus Schönbritz to settle war debts, who passed it on to Jan von Vřesovic.

In 1460, the Ossegg monastery became the owner again and remained so until 1620–1629, when the village belonged to the knight Felix Kaplirz de Sulewicz . During this time mainly Germans lived in the place.

The population also grew as a result of lignite mining. Due to the need for mining, other industries emerged in the place. A brick factory was built and the village was accessed by roads. In 1871 Obernitz received a railway connection through the private Prague-Dux Railway.
