Tisá is a village, which belongs to the Ústí nad Labem Region of the Czech Republic. The municipality covers an area of 11.85 square kilometres and has a population of 918 as of 2013. Tisá lies approximately 15km north of Ústí nad Labem and 84km north of Prague and 3km south of borders with Germany. The village is situated in 548 – 550 meters above sea level.HistoryAround the year of 500 a group of the Slavs came to the village. The origin of the name is from the Czech word "tis", meaning yew. In the 14th century the Vantenberks usurped an extensive area around Tetschen (Děčín) and built a stronghold named Šenov. Under the region of knights of Bünau (Bynov) there was a major economic expansion. In 1554 – 1557 Günter I developed a castle with a Lutheran church, presbytery, school, brewery and the name of the village was changed due to the castle into Schönstein. In 1631 Croatians and Swedes burned all of the objects in Tisá and Schönstein. In 1750 several factories were built, and the city became a cradle of the button industry.Today the municipal office of Tisá administers two other villages, Ostrov and Rájec. Since 1998 their coat of arms has been represented by three small yew branches.NatureTisá and neighbouring villages are protected by CHKO Labské pískovce . There is a part of an extensive sandstone plateau that originated about 90 million years ago in the Cretaceous Mesozoic period. When the sea covering the northern part of the country retreated, it left layers of sandstone sediments cemented with kaolin, clay and other materials. Of note is Tyssaer Wände .
