Head north of the city, into the lush Bohemian countryside, to find the former home of 23 Czech queens and princesses. Set high above the point where the Elbe and Vltava Rivers converge, the Renaissance-style Castle Melnik dazzles guests with its Great Hall, which boasts an extensive collection of 17th-century maps; its rich collection of art and antiques; and its expansive terrace, which affords views all the way out to the volcanic peaks of the Central Bohemian Uplands. Following a tour, enjoy lunch in the on-site restaurant, or a tasting of the famous locally made St. Ludmila wine in the chateau’s cellars.
