Introduction

Damborice » Introduction

Damborice is first mentioned in 1141, when it belonged to the church at Břeclav castle. The name of the town is taken from the name Domabor.

In 1534 the village was awarded status as a town by Ferdinand I. Its golden age began with the arrival of the Anabaptists in 1550.

The town is unusual for having three cemeteries: Protestant, Roman Catholic, and Jewish. The church of St. Martin, the wall by the church, and the Jewish cemetery are protected monuments.

Surviving traditions include the Shrovetide festival at the end of February and the St. Martin's Day festival in November.
