Litoměřice is one of the oldest and most significant towns in Bohemia. It is located in the fertile countryside near the Labe and Ohře rivers, north of Prague. As early as the 11th century, the Premyslids founded a capitulary with a Romanesque basilica here, which was rebuilt in the Baroque period into a bishop’s residence with the Cathedral of St. Stephen.
On the town square we can see numerous examples of chiefly Renaissance architecture (the town hall, the museum, the House “U černého orla,” the House “Kalich”). The father and son Broggi led the Baroque development of the town. Litoměřice has recently become known for its annual agricultural expo, “Zahrada Čech”(the Garden of Bohemia).
