Litoměřice is a town at the junction of the rivers Elbe and Ohře in the north part of the Czech Republic, approximately 64km northwest of Prague.The area within the Ústí nad Labem Region is called Garden of Bohemia thanks to mild weather conditions important for growing fruits and grapes. During the time of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, many pensionists chose it over more southern areas of the Empire.The town is also seat of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Litoměřice, the 4th oldest – and 3rd still existing – Catholic diocese on present Czech territory.HistoryThis Germanic city was called Nomisterium on the map of Ptolemaios in the 2nd Century. The Germanic tribes moved west during Migration Period and the remaining rest mingled with the incoming Slavs.One of the oldest Czech towns, Litoměřice was established in the 10th century on the site of an early medieval Slavic fort.In the High Middle Ages German settlers were called in by Slavic rulers. A royal-town statute was granted in 1219. From the 12th to the 17th century it was a significant trading center in the Holy Roman Empire. The German population suffered during the 15th century Hussite Wars. After the Protestant insurrection that triggered the Thirty Years' War and the Protestants' defeat in the Battle of White Mountain, the population of the city had to accept Catholicism or leave the town, which became a bishop's residency in 1655. As a result, the Czech population shrank and the town became largely Germanized.
