A hypothesis claims that the Czech name of the town comes from a Celtic word dogs probably meaning swamps or water surface. The German name Hirschberg am See means deer hill by lake. A deer is even seen on the coat of arms of the town.
It lies on the shores of Lake Mácha, and so it is a summer vacation resort. The surroundings are densely forested. Many rock groups (sandstones) are also to be seen nearby.
