Description

We’ll leave from our ship for a guided tour of Litomerice. This royal city on the confluence of the Elbe and Oh?e is one of the most beautiful in the Czech Republic. The extensive historical center has dozens of streets and squares. The colorful Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance buildings bordered to a great extent by well-preserved Gothic fortifications will delight you. Karel Hynek Mácha, the greatest Czech romantic poet, also succumbed to the charm of Litomerice. A delightful glass at the nearby Velké ?ernoseky winery will certainly make your walk through the city all the more pleasant.
Allow yourself to be enchanted by the rare architecture of the houses on the squares: the Saxon Renaissance town hall, the “Kalich” House with a roof terrace where the rich townsfolk used to meet over a glass of wine, and the “?erný orel” House, which has preserved its original appearance with wonderful sgraffito work. There are also countless important churches such as the Gothic Church of All Saints with its Renaissance broach roofs, the Church of the Annunciation of the Lady Mary representing the pinnacle of work by the Italian architect Antonio Octavio Broggio and the Baroque Cathedral of St. Stephen, which was built by Domenico Orsi. Our visit will be followed by a beer tasting. After our tour, we’ll return to the ship.
