Skály is a village and municipality (obec) in the Písek District of the South Bohemian Region of the Czech Republic. It covers an area of 6.86 square miles and has a population of 270 (as of 2020). The village is situated in the southern part of the Písek District 62 miles south of Prague. The first mention of the village dates back to 1365.

There are quite a few vernacular buildings constructed in the South Bohemian Folk or Rural Baroque style in Skály, whose gable ends are facing a central village green, with a fish pond and a chapel. The buildings date from the 18th to 20th century, with most of them built in the second half of the 19th century. Therefore the village has been designated as a Czech heritage site.[1]

Research Notes for Southern Bohemia

It is my understanding that house numbers were established about 1770. Prior to this, farms went by the original name of the owner (I do not know how far back this may go). When the farm was sold, the new owner often took the surname of the previous owner. This is the "vulgo" name. This occurred in my family and can make research more difficult. Here is an example: Barbora Vancurová (daughter of Martin Vancura) married Vavřinec Jasan. He died and her brother, Vavřinec Vancura, purchased the farm. His descendants continue to have the Jasan surname even though they should have the surname "Vancura".[2]
