You will be receiving from MapQuest showing the location of Babice u Rosice.
I found several villages with the name of Babice toward Brno from Praha. There I looked for Rosice since “u” means “near or at”.
This is the best town or village web site search to use for the Czech Rep.
Another map source is: http://www.mapy.cz/
It has aerial photo of your given village showing the street names and top views of houses.
You can spend much time just looking at the views.

Subject: [TexasCzechs] location
Is anyone here familiar with a small town or village called Babice u Rosice,
supposedly west or southwest of Brno a short distance? I do not find it in
my atlas but I may be looking it up wrong as I sometimes do, not allowing
for the differences in the way Czech & English is indexed.
Pat, U means by. It would be the village of Babice by the village of Rosice. No, I m not the one going to the Czech Republic. I went there last summer.

Does the "u" signify they are near each other or otherwise connected? If it is near Brno, it should be easier to pinpoint. Thanks for your response Joe.Pat
