The first stop is on the Roundnice chateau, which was built in 1652 - 1684 and is the most famous landmark of Roudnice. It was opened to the public in 2012. Here you can see the courtyard, the chapel with information about the Lobkowicz family and enjoy the view from the balcony of the castle. Also here we can attend to a tour with wine tasting, which includes an exhibit of the original Romanesque castle with a presentation of the city, the castle and the winery. From the castle, you can get to Poděbradova street toward Podřipské museum. The permanent exhibition here presents an overall picture of the history and settlement of Roudnice nad Labem. There is also an exhibit of minerals, image galleries, wooden structural elements of the bridge and model of Říp Mountain. After the museum visit, continue by Havlíčkova street, where you encounter the Church of the Narození panny Marie. The foundation stone of the church was laid in 1333 and construction lasted over 20 years. The church is decorated with rococo decoration and 12 panel paintings. Next stop could be a stone tower Hláska. The tower is the only preserved fortification of Roudnice and was used as an observation tower. As the last stop Kratochvil lookout awaits. The tower can be reached via the Karlovo Square, then continue down the street and Řipská and Riegerova street. This is the second lowest-lying lookout tower in the Czech Republic. Ceremoniously it was opened in 1935 and is a very interesting building from the period of greatest expansion of functionalism.
