At the confluence of the Elbe and Ohre Rivers, in the picturesque Ceské Stredohorí region, lies Litomerice, one of the oldest and most beautiful towns in the Czech Republic. The surrounding countryside is often referred to as the “Garden of Bohemia,” and the same name is used for an annual fair held in Litomerice. Currently the city is home to about 26,000 people. Tourists have access to several remaining monuments of various styles and to collections in museums, galleries, and châteaux. This is supplemented by the beautiful Ceské Stredohorí landscape, which contains a number of castles. All of Litomerice, Ustek, and Terezin were made Historical Landmarks, as was the town center of Roudnice nad Labem. The total number of Historical Landmarks registered in this district exceeds 1,000.
