The history of the village
The first mention of the village dates from 1301. The oldest place in Tuchoměřice is Kněžívka, in the past the village of the Prague duke. Archaeological finds confirm the existence of large prehistoric settlements from the 4th – 3rd centuries BC. Village of Tuchoměřice (church and fara) is mentioned in papal registers from 1352.
At that time, Heliáš, the owner of the Tuchoměřice estate, rented for himself and his wife Markéta from the Monastery in Plas a Choteč forest, where he based a farmhouse. Later the estate was owned by several Prague burghers. In 1407, the owner was Čeněk z Valdštejna, who secured the dowry of his wife Eliska of Obříství at the farm. But already in 1410 Tuchoměřice it has been sold to Habart from Nedvídek in Přelice. The owners then turned in fast frequences. In 1436 Kateřina of Tepenc – the wife of Hynek from Valdštejn to Rukštejn, referred to her sons the dowry insured in Tuchoměřice. Soon afterwards Zbyněk of Házmburk appears. In 1483 Hynek Pihelský from Házmburk died. At the beginning of the 16th century, the farm was owned by Bernard Glac of the Old Court and then Baltazar Peřina of Sloupno. He sold the estate to Jan Sluzký of Chlum. The members of this family have been living in the Tuchoměřice for centuries. Thanks to them, the original Gothic fortress was rebuilt into a Renaissance noble residence. Tuchoměřice became one of the important centers of the Czech Brothers.
In 1615 Otto Jindřich of Vartenberk purchased the Tuchoměřice chateau with its courtyard, brewery, mills and village Tuchoměřice with a fishermen's cottage in Muráň, the village of Kněžívka, the fortress and the courtyard of Čičovice, the village of Malé and Velké Čičovice. Although in 1616 he insured the dowry of his wife Dorota Boryňová of Lhota on this estate, he did not hold Tuchoměřice for a long time and sold it before 1623 to the Jesuit college at St. Kliment in Prague. At the site of the old church of St. Vitos and Linhart and the former medieval fortress, a new church and Jesuit residence were built in 1666 – 1668. The church was built with the participation of the Italian architect Giovanni Domenico Orsini. The wall paintings are from Josef Kramolin (1768). The Jesuits kept the Tuchoměřický farm and the nearby Okoř castle until the order of the Emperor Joseph II was abolished in 1773.
The archaeological artifacts from Tuchoměřice and surrounding villages are enormously rich and confirm that this area has been part of the most densely populated area of Bohemia since the prehistory. It was probably due to the good configuration of the terrain, the proximity of the Vltava river and therefore the long distance trading routes. A very favorable climate and fertile soil were important too. Outside of the Tuchoměřice area, Tursko, Libčice, Únětice, Černovičky and almost all other villages have a deep and rich history, and prove the presence of settlements already in the 4th century BC – confirmation that the place is directly destined for a comfortable living.

The interest in holiday properties in the country is not waning. However, their supply is completely insufficient after almost two years of boom. This, together with the rising price of building materials and labour, is reflected in their high prices.

The exclusive sale of luxury apartments has now been launched by our real estate agency Luxent - Exclusive Properties! The construction of the low-rise building is expected to start towards the end of this year, with completion planned for the 4th quarter of next year.

The steep rise in real estate prices, the rising cost of mortgages and the deterioration of their availability, inflation, the rise in prices of building materials and the shortage of building materials - this is the current situation on the real estate market. However, even this does not discourage those interested in luxury housing or a profitable investment. The demand for new flats, especially in Prague, still significantly exceeds the supply. The huge interest is also evidenced by the fact that in many development projects from our portfolio the last units remain to be purchased. In order to at least partially satisfy the "hunger" for luxury new buildings, work is in full swing. Let's take a closer look at the current developments!
