About Litomerice

Litomerice is a town at the junction of the rivers Elbe and Ohre in the north part of the Czech Republic, approximately 64 km (39,7 mi) northwest of Prague.

The area within the Ustí nad Labem Region is called Garden of Bohemia thanks to mild weather conditions important for growing fruits and grapes. During the time of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, many pensionists chose it over more southern areas of the Empire.

The town is also seat of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Litomerice (part of Archdiocese of Prague), the 4th oldest – and 3rd still existing – Catholic diocese on present Czech territory
