Usti nad Labem

Ústí nad Labem, is a city of the Czech Republic in its eponymous region. The city is the seventh-most populous in the country. Ústí is situated in a mountainous district at the confluence of the Bílina and Elbe rivers, and, besides being an active river port, is an important railway junction.NamingThe Old Czech word ustie meant "river-mouth": the name as a whole appears to refer to the river Bilina flowing here into the Elbe (Czech: Labe). The current name means literally "Mouth-upon-the-Elbe". In Latin, the town used the name Usk super Albium. The German name Aussig or Außig is derived from Czech.HistoryÚstí nad Labem was mentioned as a trading centre as early as 993. In the latter part of the 13th century King Otakar II of Bohemia invited German settlers into the country and granted them German city law, thereby founding the city. In 1423 Emperor Sigismund of the Holy Roman Empire pledged the town to Elector Frederick I of Meißen, who occupied it with a Saxon garrison. In 1426 it was besieged by the Hussites, who on June 16, 1426, though only 25,000 strong, defeated and slaughtered a German army of 70,000 which had been sent to its relief; the town was stormed and ransacked the next day. After lying derelict for three years, it was rebuilt in 1429. It suffered much during the Thirty Years' War and Seven Years' War.
