Coming road from Prague gives to forsee that Žatec could be quite extraordinary town. Anyway, if somebody who visits Žatec does not take with any extraordinary impression, this town, not distant from German border, has one actual leading position: it is the greatest one of the whole Louny district,as far as the number of inhabitants concerns.
Velke Brezno chateau has several the. It is located near Usti nad Labem, it is the smallest chateau in the Czech Republic. It is also the newest but many consider it one of the most beautiful.
On a high hill above the Labe soon before people started to call the longest Czech river Elbe, in German, there is Strekov Castle, the gem of industrial city of Usti nad Labem.
Decin – this city is a connection of history and natural beauties of Bohemian Switzerland. Last week, we already talked about Decinsky Cahteau. Today we will talk about Decin, Pin Garden, which is part of the chateau and that offers amazing views over the city and beautiful surrounding nature.
Amazing compound on the rock, a bending of River Elbe, everlasting fame, travellers' lectures, educative travel games for children.
Apocalypse in the Czech Republic – this could be a one name for events of couple of last days. Large floods hit the Czech Republic with a similar intensity as in the year 2002. That year the water level was so high as it was a hundred year water. The Czech Republic was better prepared than before, despite all of effort water caused heavy damages in the country.
"This is too distant and long, similar to Lovosice!" nearly anybody knows such comparison, mostly those individuals who know this town personally. We do not mention the number of letters of this word (many people have such opinion) but we take in mind real length of the locality. So, Lovosice, "The Garden of Bohemia", is really the town of rather big length.
Litoměřice is similar town as Slaný, known as so called King's town. Anyway, this locality deserves well such attribute, especially for the fact that belongs to the oldest Bohemian seats.
Mělník: who did not know the name of this town, popular at least according to the name, famous through its wine cultivation and confluence of two most important Bohemian's rivers, i.e. Labe and Vltava?
Teplice has approx. 50 thousands of inhabitants.However, the city centre remains, during the day, nearly unpeopled. It is cold and the sky was dressed into tedious gray colour shade.
The thermometer shows the six degrees and the air smells of spring. The soles are glued by ubiquitous mud. But mud associated with the end of winter, people take much better than the mud as a symbol of autumn.
State castle Ploskovice castle, which is in care of the National Heritage Institute, is another attraction of the Ústí Region. White as snow, guarded by several loud peacocks and set in a green park would not disappoint tourists.
A basaltic hill with strange shape, that together with other "greats" gives to the České středohoří mountains, for many people undiscovered, glamour - Radobýl. And Kamýk, castle ruins, that offer a perfect view to land.
Krasna Lipa – the meaning of these words (Beautiful Linden) seems to predetermine a character of the city, which calls itself the center of Ceske Svycarsko.
Who of you has ever been the ruin of Hazmburk, certainly wanted to go back there. And we are in the same place we visited in the winter, went again - this time in the hot summer, in the right tourist season and more over with a camera.
The city of Usti nad Labem is here for bicyclers, touristsand their children to elevate and amuse them. Read further to learn how it does it. If you are native to Usti and you think that there is nothing more to surprise you in the city, read further. Probably you learn that even for you there are couple of novelties you have not known about yet.
