Took Studentagency bus from Cesky Krumlov and arrived around 2pm on a rainy day. The bus/train center is not helpful if you dont speak their language. We walked down the street and kept asking people for direction to our hotel. They dont speak English but were trying to help us out. This town is very small and quiet but beautiful... More

My reaction is shockingly beautiful-who would have thought such a place exists, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site to top it off. The place is perfectly preserved from the 16th century with very colorful buildings, a beautiful square and a large church over 700 years old dominates the town. There are a number of restaurants and snack places for those... More

This place is amazing, we happened there by chance on our way to Cesky Krumlov and am really glad that I insisted on visiting it. The square is stunning with aLL the coloured buildings and plenty of good places to eat and drink. Ideal for families too as it has a lovely pedastrian area.

Great set of old buildings around the square. Last time I was there was not very good weather which was even better as there was very little tourists and it is allways better in a place like Telc and it's center as otherwise you should fee a bit of stress. We went up the tower with sights around the Chateau... More

The square in Telč is an amazing place and should be visited. The stylistic variety in the facades can be very absorbing to take in. The downside is that the square is open to motor traffic and thus has cars parked on it through the day. This not only obstructs photographic opportunities, it also takes away from the square's unique... More

It is beautiful, no doubt. You could spend hours there taking pictures, looking at the facades of the buildings, having a espresso in a cafe. There's a few restaurants, which are crowded during the day with the day-trippers from Prague but pleasant in the evening. And there's a few shops. Otherwise, it's a bit slow.

The main square of Telc is pretty amazing, with the elaborate baroque facades of most of the houses being varied only by the occasional even older renaissance sgraffiti and the original gothic vaults within many of the houses. There were market stalls at one end and a pleasant restaurant overlooking the whole square at the other. Tourist Information give out... More

The center is a really nice place - feels completely out of time. The view from the lookout-tower seems to take this feeling even further, and makes me feel as if this town is out of the real world, too, surrounded by hills. I personally prefer towns with a bit more life to them - I mean nothing extravagant, nothing... More

In a country of real beauty, Telc was made a heritage site in 1992 - very early in the republic's history post communism and the square is really beautiful. It's architecture is a great example of the pastel shaded plaster facades of Bohemia. We didn't go into the castle but there is a museum focused on telc there. Worth a... More

Lovely historic town centre with a large boating lake, church, old town watch tower, museum and historic UNESCO buildings. The town square is like something from a Hansel and Gretal story with plenty of tourist shops, Market stalls, coffe bars, restaurants, tea shops, food outlets and entertainment. Well worth a day out.
