Milesovka mountain.

The Central Bohemian Uplands comprise more than 1000 km², the second largest protected landscape area in the Czech Republic.



The landscape of this area is very special. The relief and geology are extremely diverse. The mountain range is intersected by the Elbe River and the difference between the lowest and highest elevations is more than 700 meters. The mountains have a unique cone shape, thanks to their volcanic origin, rising from the flatland. The highest mountain is Milesovka (837 meters). The landscape is diverse, from fields in valleys to pastures, orchards, vineyards and forested hills.

Flora and faunaEdit

In number of plant species, this area is one of the richest in the Czech Republic, due to varied types of biotopes: oak forests, dry grasslands or rock steppes. Several species have survived since the Ice Age and some plants are typical for South Russian steppes. Several unique insect species can also be found here.


The climate is generally warmer than in the rest of the Czech Republic and the southern part of the Central Bohemian Uplands is the warmest and driest area in the country. However, the highest peak, Milesovka, is considered the windiest place in the country.
