I must confess I'm not fond of older cards or repruduction of older pictures but this one is ok.

Litoměřice is a city in the north part of the Czech Republic, approximately 64 km (40 mi) northwest of Prague.
A plethora of natural and cultural landmarks with a well-developed network of footpaths make Litoměřice a popular destination for visitors to this corner of Bohemia. Here, at the confluence of the Labe and Ohře rivers, in the picturesque region of the Czech Central Mountains, lies one of the oldest and most beautiful Czech towns, the royal town of Litoměřice, whose population nowadays is almost 26,000 people. As mute witness to the historic glory of Royal Litoměřice stand Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque buildings, protected under an urban preservation order since the year 1978. - in:
On this card is possible to see a partial view of the St. Stephen's cathedral and the bishop's residence.
