The Ústí nad Labem Region shares a border with the German state of Saxony. This has made the region a vital axis point for travel and trade to key cities in Europe, notably Berlin and Vienna. It is also an industrial and financial centre.

Ústí nad Labem is in a mountainous area where the Bílina and Elbe Rivers meet. Important trans-European transport routes converge at the city’s railway junction and its bustling river port. Existing industries have been undergoing restructuring, which could provide more employment opportunities and attract investors to the city.
Many visitors come to Ústí nad Labem for the downhill and cross-country skiing, or the hiking and cycling trails in the Bohemian Uplands and the River Elbe Valley.
