Geomorphologically the PLA is divided into two main parts by the deep, 50 km long, Elbe river valley (in its southern part it is called “Porta Bohemica“). The NW part is characterized by vast mountainous non-volcanic plateau with the precipitation average of 700 mm/year. The SW part is very diversed, where the sharp shaped volcanic hills (cones) prevail. The precipitation there is lower, reaching 450 mm and it is one of the driest (and warmest) regions in the CZ. Volcanic rock dominates geologically (different types of basalt, fonolith) and marlite or limestone soil types (clays, chalk or sandstone sediments).
