History[edit]

Libkovice is located near sacred hill Říp in small valley at an altitude of 221 meters. Libkovice was founded at the end of first millennium after Christ, during the reign of powerful Vršovci dynasty. The name of village is probably deduced from name of first family which lived in this place. Great grandfather of this family was named Ljubek, so the name of village was originally Ljubekovice.
