Plánice - Pohoří

Pohoří is a local part of the town of Plánice. The village of Pohoří is located at the northwestern foot of Stírka hill under the hill "Hora" - Pohoří.

Hence, probably originally "Pohorí", later Pohoří. The name of the village has evolved from Pohoržuo through Pohorzi and Pohorž to the current Pohoří. The first mention in the description of the estate of Zelená Hora in Nepomuk from 1558 is the village registered as Pohoržuo. At the end of the 19th century, 162 inhabitants lived in the village in 28 descriptive numbers, and there was a farm and a game reserve.

The old inn Veselka stood near the village, which supposedly had a special duty. Every foreman who stopped here was treated to a free slice of bread and a liter of beer by the innkeeper. It was said to be at the request of the hunting countess, and for this service the innkeeper was exempted from some serf duties.

The mountain range lies almost 658 m above sea level and thus provides a wonderful view of Šumava and, with very good visibility, a view of the snow-capped peaks of the Alps. Until the Second World War, the antiquity of the mountains was underlined by thatched roofs and old entrances under linden trees. In the vicinity we can find, for example, Vlčí jámy, Velký kámen, Čertova studánka, Křižík path, and a hiking and cycling route passes through the village. Among other things, it will take tourists to the wooden cottage No. 19 "U Primasů". While repairing the roof, the owner of the house found a bundle of various documents in the attic. Among them was a record from 1856, according to which the director of the Zöllner nomadic company paid 10 guilders for housing horses and lodging for the sick Josef Kajetán Tyl.From there the company continued the next day via Nepomuk to Pilsen, where Josef Kajetán Tyl died on July 11, 1856.

North-west of the village in the Kákov forest lies the nature park Plánický ridge, which is crossed by the red-marked Křižík route from Plánice to Nepomuk. Křižík's mother was supposed to take groceries to Prague for her student son on this route.

According to legend, once a year on Good Friday, when the Passion is being read in the church, on the hill called Velký or Kákovský kámen, a huge castle appears on the hill called Velký or Kákovský kámen, which was petrified along with its inhabitants, because they were extremely cruel to their subjects and they cursed them. According to legend, treasures are hidden in the underground of the castle, which someone has tried to find more than once.

In the village there is a chapel of St. Václav, a monument to those who died in the world wars and the torment of God.
