Plánice - Lovčice

Lovčice is a local part of the town of Plánice. The first written mention of the village dates back to 1558. Lovčice was originally a part of the Zelenohorské manor, later the village became part of the Plánice manor. In 1683, the Bořit family from Martinice became the owners of the estate, who had a baroque castle built in Lovčice at the beginning of the 18th century (today it is also privately owned). The author of the project was allegedly Kilián Ignác Dienzenhofer, who also built a pilgrimage church in nearby Ničov. Monuments of local importance include a chapel in the village, a monument to those who died in World War I, a stone cross in the direction of Lovčice and a cross at the crossroads in Račine.

In the years 1869 - 1910, Lovčice was a settlement of the village of Kvasetice. After that, they were a separate municipality for some time, and since 1980 they have been a local part of Plánice.
