Lost 7 - Švarcava (Schwarzau) N49 19.737 E12 59.30
Lost Village Švarcava (Schwarzau)

Today many hiking trails cross the entire Bavarian-Czech boarder zone which was over 40 years long restricted area. You can find many indication of settlement in this wilderness, often meets weathered heaps of stone, fallen down gravestones, old walls and savaged fruit trees. These culture remainders is a evidence off disappeared village life. Since the Middle Ages here Czechs and Germans settled next to each other. The people who lived here, left her homeland around 1945 usually obligatorily. Many locations with churches, houses and stables were broken off, blown up, gradened by the communist regime.

The village Schwarzau was completely destroyed 1945. Today only a sign reminds of the lost place.

Zaniklá Ves Švarcava (Schwarzau)

Help needed! Is there any czech-speaking Cacher who can translate the text below into german? Please contact me! Thank you!

švarcava u Všerub dnes zcela znicená osada jv. od Všerub v plochém úvalu potoka Kouba který v techto místech tvorí cesko-bavorskou hranici. Osídleni vzniklo asi koncem 17. století na tehdy ješte nemeckém území, od r. 1707 pak soucást Cech. Poté se Švarcava stala osadou nedalekého Šprymberka (nyní Pomezí). Po vysídlení nemeckého obyvatelstva byly místem na pocátku 50. let nataženy príhranicní dráty (v 70. letech posunuty až k silnici Všeruby-Pláne) a osada zcela zanikla, dnes louky.

Untergegangenes Dorf Švarcava (Schwarzau)

Die gesamte bayerisch-tschechische Grenzzone, die über 40 Jahre lang Sperrgebiet war, durchziehen heute zahlreiche Wanderwege. Man erwartet in dieser Wildnis keine Besiedlung. Und doch trifft man oft auf alte Mauerzüge, verwitterte Steinhaufen, umgefallene Grabsteine, verwilderte Obstbäume, auf Wege und Siedlungsstrukturen. Diese Kulturreste zeugen von verschwundenem dörflichem Leben. Seit dem Mittelalter siedelten hier Tschechen und Deutsche nebeneinander. Die Bevölkerung, die hier lebte, verließ um 1945 meist zwangsweise ihre Heimat. Viele Ortschaften mit Kirchen, Häusern und Stallungen wurden vom kommunistischen Regime abgebrochen, gesprengt, eingeebnet.

Das Dorf Schwarzau wurde 1945 vollständig zerstört. Heute erinnert nur noch ein Schild an den vergangenen Ort.
