The České Středohoří PLA extends along both banks of the Elbe in northern Bohemia It covers almost one whole land feature, the mountain range after which the PLA is named. Characteristic conical hills are the result of Tertiary volcanic activity, which pushed up igneous rock mainly of phonolite and basalt type into the form of mounds and blankets. České Středohoří, due to its specific natural conditions (average temperature 9-5°C, average precipitation 470-800 mm, mainly alkaline soil), is among the richest places in the Czech Republic in terms of biodiversity. Steppe and scree coenosis are typical to the area. Dozens of species that have been declared endangered or critically endangered within the Czech Republic depend on them. Thanks to its suitable natural conditions České Středohoří was early colonised and cultivated by man. During the centuries, the specific landscape was formed in a balanced way. It is a landscape of typical relief, with orchards interlaced with numerous little settlements, popular estates and magnificent historical monuments.
