The district town Melnik lies in the middle of the Labe lowlands at the confluence of the rivers Labe and Vltava. The Region belongs to the most important agricultural areas of the Czech Republic. The princess Ludmila began with wine-growing in Melnik and later the Roman emperor and Czech king Charles IV. continued in this activity. Now the wine-growing is a big tradition in Melník and every autumn a wine-celebration takes place here.
