Usti preserved its medieval town characteristics until the 19th century, when the advent of the railway and heightened use of water transport created conditions for intensive coal mining. Subsequently, everything in the path of rapid industrial development was destroyed without feeling. The city gates and walls were torn down, the moat was filled in, and the historical center was damaged both by reconstruction and bombing during World War II. Today only a small section of the big industrial city has managed to retain the character of the historic royal city. The Strekov Castle, standing on a precipitous basalt crag across the river, is the only notable reminder of the city’s medieval origin.
