Rouské (German Rauske , formerly Rausko ) is a municipality in the Czech Republic . It is located three kilometers west of Kelč and belongs to the Okres Přerov . Rouské became famous for his numerous sundials.


Rouské is located on the left side above the valley of the Juhyně on a hilltop in the Kelečská pahorkatina ( Keltscher hill country ). The Strážné (399 m) rises to the northeast and the Stráž (433 m) to the south.

Neighboring towns are Malhotice and Horní Těšice in the north, Dolní Těšice and Němetice in the northeast, Kelč and Posvátno in the east, Police and Lhota in the southeast, Babice, Komárno and Provodovice in the south, Všechovice in the southwest, Býškovice in the west and Rakov in the northwest.


Coin finds indicate that a trade route along the Amber Road to Kelč led northeast of the village . In 1938 a boy found the Keltsch coin treasure ( Kelečský poklad ) on the Strážné hill while harvesting potatoes . The roughly 1500 whole and half coins with a weight of 43.3 decagrams date from the period between 1002 and 1020.

Ruske formed an episcopal fief at the beginning of the 14th century and was first mentioned in writing in 1320. In 1389 the place was called Ruski , 1408 as Rusko , 1410 as Ruské and 1475 as Rousko . In 1516 the Silesian nobleman Jan d. Ä. Obešlík von Lipultovice, a son of the Drahotuš castle bailiff Jan von Lipultovice enfeoffed the estate. Jan d. Ä. was probably also the builder of the Rouské fortress and also owned the surrounding feudal estates Kladeruby , Komárovice, Babice and Malhotice . He worked under Bishop Stanislaus Thurzo from 1526 as an assessor and from 1533 as a councilor at the episcopal feudal court in Kremsier . The subsequent owner of the fortress and the estate was his son Tysult Obešlík between 1547 and 1554, who made the Babice fortress his seat. In 1555 Oneš von Zástřizl was enfeoffed with Rouské, followed by Petr Šmerhovský from Lidkovice in the same year. In 1580 the fiefdom was transferred to Oldřich and Matyáš, the sons of Jans the Elder. Ä. Šmerhovský transferred. From 1585 the place was called Rouský . Because of his participation in the Mansfeld rebellion of 1626, Jan Šmerhovský lost the fiefdom, which went to the knights Rotenberg von Katscher and Dirschel ( Rotmberkové z Ketře a Drslavě ). After the death of the episcopal councilor Heinrich von Rotenberg († 1653), the Rusky fiefdom was withdrawn in 1654 and united with the rule of Kelč . The fortress lost its importance as a noble seat and fell into disrepair; in their place an episcopal court was built. Other forms of the name were Rausky (1676), Rauschky (1718) and Rausska , Rauska or Rauschka (1771). Until the middle of the 19th century, the village always remained subservient to Kelč, wherever it was parish.

After the abolition of patrimonial Rousko / Rausko formed from 1850 a community in the district authority Holleschau . In 1876 the place was assigned to the district of Mährisch Weißkirchen . The municipality has been called Rouské since 1921 . After the Okres Hranice was abolished, Rouské was assigned to the Okres Přerov in 1960. From 1976 Rouské was initially affiliated with the Local National Committee Všechovice and since 1983 it has been completely incorporated into Všechovice. Since November 24, 1990, Rouské has again formed its own municipality. In the "Village of the Year" competition in 2002, Rouské was awarded the Blue Ribbon for community and cultural life; In 2007 the municipality was the winner of the competition in Olomoucký kraj. Ethnographically the place belongs to the Hanna region Záhoran.
