[Czech rep. regional centres] Ústí nad Labem

Ústí nad Labem



When travelling on Berlin - Dresden - Prague track, you pass thorough a picturesque scenery of steep hills along the Elbe valley where you happen - in area around German-Czech border. About 40 km from the border, centre of North-Western Bohemia, Ústí nad Labem (pop 94,900; 2007), welcomes in tiny basin made of Labe (german Elbe) and Bílina rivers... It is difficult to find a landmark of Ústí nad Labem (Aussig an der Elbe in German) recognisable from abroad, if any. Therefore here is a presentation to find one out . The Střekov Castle, built on a steep rock deserves to be one. Ústí is a city of largest scale of WWII damage in Czech republic and as such lacks of spectacular historical architecture. Nevertheless, its unique localisation and corner-by-corner contrast may attract Berlin (270 km)- Prague (100 km) travellers to get out of the train for several hours.
