Netschetin - the region of Manetin
The Jewish cemetery was situated on the wood meadow its origins are from the 17th century, but unfortunately it was destroyed by Nazis.
The tombstone were pulled out and thrown on one pile, today covered by bushes and moss.
If you take a closer look you can find some interesting tombstones with sculpture decorations e.g. blessing hands from 1747 and others. You can also recognize two parts of the cemetery - old one and new one divided by the path. It is a very interesting place to visit eventhough it was badly damaged.
The original Jewish road and the synagogue were rebuilded.
The town was originaly divided into two villages. The village Nectiny comes from 1169 and it was a royal property. During the rule of John of Luxemberg the property was sold e.g. the castle Preitenstein (today a part of Nectiny). The castle was build in the 13th century by Oldrich Pluh (later from Rabsterjn). He was also a keeper for the castle Krivoklat.
After the Hussits wars the town changed owner several times.
In 1511 the village was privilaged as a town by the king Vladislav of Jagellons. Later the town recieved other privillegies. The last nobel family who owned the town were Mansdorfs.
The castle was rebuiled several times. The name of the village nearby Castle Nectiny remains of its original existence.
The newer part of the town was established in the 17th century. It did not become a part of the town but the new castle was built there. The castle was built in Tudor´s gothical style. Nowaday is used by the Pilsen University.
