Dubá (German: Dauba) is a town in the Czech Republic. It has a population of around 1,800. The nearby lake of Nedamov acts as an attractive destination for tourists (mostly German and Czech).

History[edit]

Until 1918, the town was part of the Austrian monarchy (Austria side after the compromise of 1867), head of the DAUBA district, one of the 94 Bezirkshauptmannschaften in Bohemia.[1] From 1938 to 1945 it was one of the municipalities in Sudetenland.
