Follow the fragrance of wine to Mělník
There is no better way to enjoy the unforgettable charm of Mělník than to watch the sunset over the confluence of the two biggest Czech rivers right below its magnificent chateau while delighting your taste buds with the excellent local wine. Come and experience it for yourself!
You can begin your stay in Mělník by walking around the square lined with beautiful arcaded buildings. Your gaze will certainly gravitate to the town hall and the adjacent former Capuchin monastery. If you like mysterious spaces with a special energy, you can descend into the medieval Mělník underground with the widest well in the Czech Republic. You can walk down Svatováclavská ulice (St. Wenceslas Street) to the Mělník Chateau and the dominant feature of the city, the beautifully decorated Cathedral of SS Peter and Paul, in whose crypt you can visit one of the largest ossuaries in the country, containing the remains of up to 15,000 people.
The most beautiful view in the city
Be sure to take a tour of the chateau. Not only will you see the rich collections of the Lobkowicz family but in its cellars you will also have a unique opportunity to sample the chateau wines from one of only two wine-growing regions in Bohemia. From the chateau restaurant you will have a magnificent view of the confluence of the Elbe and Vltava rivers, the St. Ludmila Vineyard, the majestic Říp Mountain and the volcanic peaks of the Central Bohemian Highlands.
