Beroun, a small town of 18,000 inhabitants, is located at the confluence of the Litavka and Berounka rivers. Tourists who stop at Karlštejn Castle mostly forget about it, but it is also a pleasant starting point to many must-see sights (Karlštejn, Křivoklát among others), rich in various sights that will delight those who want to get off the beaten track. The town developed at the place where the trading village of Brod ("ford" in Czech) stood as early as 1088. It was an important crossing point between Prague and Bavaria. The city itself was founded in 1265, during the reign of King Přemysl Otokar II. In the 19th century, the city found itself on the route of the railway line connecting Prague to Plzeň. At the same time, Beroun acquired a strong industrial identity (metallurgy, boilermaking, etc.) and regained its role as a regional centre.
