Střižovický vrch

 We did a trip to Střižovický vrch and passed Mariánský bridge, the symbol of Ústí nad Labem.

There is a spring on Střižovický vrch with a model of ruins of local castle Střekov.

Lilies are rare in Europe, this is I think the only species that grows naturally in the Czech republic, Lilium martagon. We were lucky to see it, it's rare. Today I saw it for the very first time in my life.

Home we rewarded ourselves with svíčková. Together with "vepřo-knedlo-zelo" (pork, dumplings and sauerkraut) this is considered to be the Czech national meal. It's cream sauce served with sliced dumplings, beef (originally it should be sirloin) and  cranberries. Yum!

And banana shake as a dessert.
