Dresden - Litomerice

115 km

22 June 2023


I’m heading today down the Elbe / Labe in to the Czech Republic and then on to Prague.  The river will take me all the way as it meanders along.  Dresden is very monumental, not just in buildings but also in lay out, and I found myself pretty quickly riding down a Mall like way through a huge park, Grosser Garten, on the way to the river.  The opposite bank very quickly is in the Czech Republic, and by lunchtime my side of the river had also passed in to the Czech Republic.  The path isn’t as well found as it is in Germany, but nonetheless it was as pleasant ride.  Czechs like their beer, their snacks, and their ice cream, and all along the way there were little shacks selling everything I needed for refreshment.  The river meanders a bit, but I largely kept to the banks.  My hotel in Litomerice, cheap and cheerful, was not good with the food, just a plate piled high with some kind of soggy schnitzel and lots of chips.  I hope that Prague can do better, because I will be spending a few days in Prague and want to look forward to some decent cuisine.

Accommodation:  Night of 22nd June - Hotel Koliba Litomerice
