Along the Elbe River

A couple of months ago I had the chance to travel to a part of Central Europe I haven’t been to before. The initial plan was to travel around Northern Bohemia in the Czech Republic. At last we ventured into the neighbouring region of Southern Saxonia too, as the borderlands are historically and geologically intertwined. The region is shaped by the Elbe river, one of the longest in Europe. Along the river you’ll find many towns, some are charming and touristy, while others are more industrial in nature (pictures 2, 3, 6). The highlight though is the magnificent landscape shaped by sandstone (picture 5). Climb one of the many mountaintops around sunset and enjoy the great view (last picture).

Bohemia in March

It already should have been spring but it was a freezing cold winter weekend. Some impressions of the southern bohemian cities of Czeske Budejovice (Budweis) and Czesky Krumlov (Krumlau) in those days.
