Famous for its vineyards, especially those from Burgundy, the city is located 32 km north of Prague, where the Vltava and Elbe rivers meet. It is undoubtedly one of the jewels of the region. The ossuary of the church of Saints Peter and Paul is particularly appreciated. It is also famous for its 9th century castle, second residence of the queen from the 13th century. The whole constitutes a very homogeneous city: ideal to spend a touristic day, with wine tastings as a bonus.

History

The name of this city comes from its position on a hill. It was in the 9th century that we hear about the town, when a fortress was built here by the Slavic Pšov tribe. One of them, Ludmilla, married a member of the royal dynasty and became queen. Nevertheless, she preferred to stay at Mělnik and raised her son Wenceslas there, who, like her, would later become the patron saint of Bohemia. Mělnik will become over time the castle of queens and royal widows, who chose to follow the example of Ludmilla.
