In Czechia, EuroVelo 7 begins by following the Moldau River, crossing the picturesque UNESCO town of Cesky Krumlov, the České Budějovice and Castle Hluboká n/Vltavou. After Prague, the route follows the Moldau River Route all the way to Melník, with outstanding castles and steep vineyards at the confluence of the Vltava (Moldau) and the Labe (Elbe) rivers. On the Elbe Trail, you will pass Theresienstadt, a former Nazi concentration camp, Porta Bohemica, a steep Elbe valley with vineyards, and the Bohemian uplands characterised by ancient volcanoes. With a short detour you can visit a cross border National park in Bohemian-Saxonian Switzerland, with magnificent rock formations and deep gorges.
