Melnik is the main town in its district, situated about 30 km north of Prague on the vine-clad right bank of the Labe (Elbe) River, opposite the inflow of the Vltava. The town´s origins go back to the 10th century, when Slav Emperor Charles IV had the first Burgundian vines planted on the slopes above the Labe and the Vltava Rivers – the first beginnings of viniculture in Bohemia – of which Mělník is now the main centre.
A large Wine Festival is held here annually during the last weekend in September. The town´s well-known Ludmila wine commemorates the country´s first martyr and patron saint.
