  Usti nad Labem - 80km north of Prague
by globetrott

Usti nad Labem / Aussig is an important town with 98000 inhabitants in the north of the Czech Republik. The main train-line betweeen Prague and Dresden will go through Usti nad Labem, beautifully situated at the river Elbe , called Labe in Czechia.
Usti n.L. is the most important port on the river Elbe, just after Hamburg.
The castle on my picture is Strekov / Schreckenstein:

Strekov castle is open daily
from May till August : 09.00a.m.-05.00p.m.
in september&October: 09.00a.m.-04.00p.m.

The castle dates back to the 14th century and was used as a toll-station for the merchants transporting their goods on the river Elbe.

You may get to Usti nad Labem by train or by cruise-ship. Roads in that area are a total mess : a highway is under construction and the signs of deviations sometimes keep you sending around in a circle...
