Děčín is located in northwestern Bohemia, at the confluence of the rivers Elbe and Ploučnice. The Elbe cut through the soft sandstone mountains of the region, and the city lies in the transition zone between Bohemian Switzerland and the Lusatian Mountains in the north and the Central Bohemian Uplands in the south. It is made up of two towns, one on either side of the Elbe; the old town of Děčín is on the right bank, and on the left bank is Podmokly, which was incorporated in 1942 during the German occupation of World War II. With the elevation of 135 metres (443 ft) in the river valley it is the lowest city in the country.
