Litvínov is situated at an elevation of 320 m in the southern foothills of the Krušné hory (Erzgebirge, Ore Mountains) in northern Bohemia. A papal tax book of 1352 mentioned the place as Lutwynivilla. Litvínov obtained the status of a market town in 1715, and that of a town in 1852. Since the early 18th century textile industry was the main economic factor for the town.
The deanery church of the Archangel Michael [left] was built in 1685–1694 in Early Baroque style.
