Enjoy Litoměřice Like We Do

Litoměřice

Few can resist the magic of this royal town at the [soutok] of the [Labe] and Ohře Rivers, which because of its warm climate and fertile soil is known as the Garden of Bohemia. In addition to the rich soil and hillside vineyards, one will also find precious historical landmarks. We can proudly say that Litoměřice is one of the most picturesque cities in the entire region, although the spa town of Teplice is also worth a visit at any time of year.

This important spa town also has a splendid [přezdívka] – little Paris. Its charm is enhanced by sprawling parks, architectural gems and a full calendar of cultural events. Except instead of the River Seine the town has [minerální prameny]. To traditionally kick off the spa season, friends and [příbuzní] from far and wide come to town and the party atmosphere lingers long after the biggest social event of the year is over.
Kamenné lázně in Teplice
The thermal [lázně] here are the oldest in Central Europe. You can trust in our experience with treating musculoskeletal disorders, allergies and asthma as there has been a spa here for more than 850 years. And our reputation is well known internationally. At the Neo-Baroque Kamenné lázně you will hear praise for the treatments in many languages. But we are also glad to hear a Czech [děkuji] – don't worry about the accent. The newly opened Thermalium thermal centre will also leave you feeling recharged.
Spa life in Teplice
It wouldn't be a proper stay at the spa without meandering walks and [chytání lelků]. And for that we are perfectly prepared. Those that prefer oases of green will enjoy strolling through the Chateau Garden, Havlíčkovy sady, Šanov park or Letná park with its beautiful overlook of the city. Architecture buffs will want to view the historic buildings on Zámecké [náměstí] from a restaurant terrace.

Every Czech housewife knows the traditional “cibulák” – [nádobí] made of white porcelain with blue floral motifs. It is produced near Teplice in the town of Dubí. We must recommend a visit to the local porcelain works because we'll let you in on a secret, it doesn't have that much to do with [cibule]. Aha. You can impress owners of this famous blue-white porcelain with this little paradox all over the world.

At one time our land even gave birth to [sopky], mostly in Northwest Bohemia. Now that these volcanoes have shaped the landscape, we're the ones who can let off a little steam, ideally na [na kole]. The Czech středohoří have cycling trails that reward you with fantastic views at the tops of peaks. The greatest prize is Milešovka, the windiest mountain in the Czech Republic, and there is always an eruption of joy once you make the summit.
 
Labe cycling trail
Not every cyclist yearns to pedal uphill. Most of us would rather take it easy and hop off the saddle every once and a while for a goulash, beer or [koupačka]. Does that sound like you? Then try the cycling path that runs along the entire length of the Elbe all the way to the North Sea. The stretch in the Czech středohoří with its steep rocky cliffs and numerous lookouts (for example, from Střekov Castle) is in our opinion the prettiest. Our tip: We prefer to ride against the current but with the wind.

For Czechs, Říp is a mythical mountain associated with legends about the origins of our land – at least once in a lifetime this sacred place should be visited. It's a bit of a [krpál], but our mythical forefather Čech managed it, and he didn't even have a trail to follow. On the other hand, we aren't surprised that he didn't want to go any further. You're a little late to stake out your own homeland, but it's still worth it to visit the pub at the top and look out over the land of [mléko] and [strdí].
