Usti nad Labem Travel Guide: 31 reviews and 87 photos

train stop between Germany and Prague

I passed through this town on my way to Dresden and back. The city itself is mostly industrial; however, there are two sights that should not be missed, and they can easily be seen from the train.

Approaching the city you will see a marvellous ruined castle sitting on top of a promontory above the river Laba. And inside the modern town you can see a very nice suspension bridge. It is perhaps the most elegant modern concrete bridge I have ever seen. It has only one tower, and it is curved, and it is surprisingly visually appealing.

The river valley is quite stunning, with beautiful vertical mountains and thick forests.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:suspension bridge and castle, beautiful river valley
  • Cons:everything else: industrial town with many smoke-puffing pipes
  • In a nutshell:you can see the two sights out of the train window without getting out
