Day 1: individual arrival at Prague
Today you travel on your own to Prague - the capital of the Czech Republic. Prague stands for many things: music and middle age, Kafka and Kisch, beer and dumpling with roast pork. Since 1992 the historical centre of Prague is an UNESCO World Heritage Site. The well-preserved town centre, the historic buildings, winding alleys of the old town and the wide view over everything from the Charles Bridge and Prague Castle. Strolling through the streets of Prague for hours, looking at the beautiful houses, discovering new cafés and pubs - this belongs to your stay, too.
Day 2: Prague – Melnik (about 54 km)
Prague is indeed our starting point of the lower part of the Elbe Cycle Path, but at first you cycle along the river Vltava until you reach after apporximately 50 km at Melnik the Elbe. Arriving at the port of Klecany you have the choice to cycle over the steeply graded streets of Klecany and Vodochody or to chosse the flat, mostly unpaved but very scenic route along the river Vltava. After an adventurous journey on unpaved and paved roads and streets you get to Melnik. The pretty little town has its origins in a Slavic settlement from the 9th century. It is situated at the confluence of the Elbe and Vltava. Worth seeing are the castle and the Saint Peter Curch and Saint Paul Church.
Day 3: Melnik – Terezin/Litomerice (about 41/43 km)
You cycle along the Elbe from Melnik to Litomerice. On good and less good navigable parts of the path, past a sulfur plant in Dolni Berkovice and the castle of Roudnice you reach after approximately 41km Terezin. Known for his sad history, Terezin is now a memorial to the dread of the Period of National Socialism. Then you have to cross the Elbe to reach your today's destination.
Day 4: Terezin/Litomerice – Usti n. Labem (about 28/26 km)
After breakfast this stage begins at Litomerice. In the 11th century the Stephans Cathedral was build and the development of an episcopal Litomerice began. There are still numerous and attractive churches that are a charming testimony of this period. Today Litomerice is the economic, political and cultural center of this area. In Usti rises on the right bank the ruins Strekov ( in German terror stone ), which was built on a 100 meter high phonolite rock. Previously she served for the defense of trade routes, today it houses a restaurant with a wine bar and terrace, which offers a magnificent view over the Elbe Valley.
Day 5: Usti n. Labem – Bad Schandau (about 50 km)
This section of the tour leads you from Usti nad Labem to Bad Schandau. Passing the State Palace Grand Praised (Velke Brezno) which has a garden in the English style and the castle in Decin with its baroque gardens takes you to the border. From there you continue either on the right side of the Elbe through Schmilka to Bad Schandau or on the left bank through Reinhardtsdorf and Schöna to Bad Schandau. The rise of the city into a popular spa and resort in the 19th century began with the discovery of the iron source in Kirnitzschtal. Worth seeing are the old Brauhof, the Old Town House, the passenger lift to the district of Ostrava and the Kirnitzschtalbahn.
