The town Úštěk is situated in the picturesque landscape of Northern Bohemia, on the boundary of the Nature Reserves of České Středohoří (Czech Highland) and Kokořinsko. The Úštěk area can be found in the Eastern part of the Ústi nad Labem district and forms a part of its border with the Liberec Region. The town of Úštěk was built at the foothills of sandstone walls in the eastern part of České Středohoří with the highest hill of Sedlo (726 meter above sea level). The area is traversed with Loubní, Červený and Úštěcký brooks; the latter empties into the Elbe River near the town of Litoměřice. The Chmelař pond north of the foothills is the largest water area (67 ha) and an important agricultural and economic element of the whole region.
The town, as a preservation area, and its neighborhood have attracted many visitors from the country as well as from abroad who may admire here those many beautiful corners and places. During summer, the small-town atmosphere changes as if touched by a magic wand. The town is also immortalized in many successful films. A number of film heroes were inhabitants of the town in their imaginary film lives, for instance the grandmother in the Oscar award winning film "Kolja", the pilot Maděra from "Zdivočelá země" (Savage Land), or the three deserters in the film "Rebelové" (Rebels). Also, the historical film "Zámek v Čechách" (A Chateau in Bohemia), which starred Jiřina Jirásková, was shot here. The neighborhood of the town has served as exterior scene of film fairy-tales and film stories for children such as the memorable "Páni kluci" (Brave Kids) or "O létajícím ševci" (The Flying Cobbler).
