Favorite thing: Telc is my favorite town in Tschechien ! I was really surprised to see such a nice place, although it has plenty of tourists already and the prizes are more expensive than in the other villages close to the border.

Favorite thing: Telc is a Moravian town--but it is quite close to the Bohemian border. So this is a perfect opportunity to switch from the wines of Moravia to the beers of Bohemia. Many of the pubs and cafes will be loyal to just one brewery (Budvar or Regent or Pilsner Urquel). Honestly, the difference between the beers was minimal--all decent pilsners. Nothing like the extremely flavorful beers of Belgium, but good after a long morning's hike. An added bonus is that the tap beer is strong, very strong at 12%.

Favorite thing: The Telc Square suffered heavy damage from a fire in 1530. About the same era Zacharias of Hradec became one of the leading nobles of Moravia and Bohemia. He chose Telc as his seat of power and built himself a Renaissance Chateau. Naturally, this development infused wealth into the town and the square was rebuilt with vigor after 1550 in the Renaissance style chosen by Zacharias. To this day the "houses" that form the square in Telc are preserved in that same Renaissance style.
Elaborate facades front each house. There are broad galleries in front of the first floor business establishments and living quarters upstairs. The town has been repainted and restored quite carefully since the fall of the communist regime.

Favorite thing: There are great arcades in the houses with little souvenir shops, cafès and restaurants - very nice to sit and have some coffee and cake ...
And this is also a good way to discover this place even when it rains ... you won't get wet if you walk through the arcades and you need no umbrella ...

Favorite thing: The reason why there are so many renaissance buildings on the square is the following: In the 16th century it came to a big "reconstruction" and many buildings were reconstructed from gothic into renaissance. The town has not changed very much since that time. Even the communists, which were no friends of old culture, didn't remove them.
Next to the town square you can see a wonderful castle with a great garden and a wonderful court yard. Very interesting!

Telc is the one most meaningful renaissance town Europe and the best preserved renaissance town north of the Alps. It is located in the south of the Czech Republic (in Moravia) and half the way from Vienna to Prague.
The old town square is so perfect that you will feel like in an old movie - or even in a fairy tale. The is NOT A SINGLE modern building on the square, all the houses, the wells, the monuments, even the cobbled stones have been perfectly restored.

Favorite thing: Further Telc has some great churches - although I can say that they only look great from outside, because when I was there, all churches where closed ... even at easter... :-(( Hopefully they will open it also for tourists soon.
The church looks very nice and you will see all the details if you click on the picture.

Favorite thing: Sightseeing from the arcades - (you read correctly) also this is possible in Telc. If you look on the pic on your left, you will know what I mean - there is a great view to the town square and you can make pics even when it rains ... there is no danger for you and your camera.
But this looks also interesting when the sun shines ...
