This is a gem of a small Czech town.You can cross the main square in less than 5 minutes ,but a little time and patience will reward you.The town I believe had a very bad fire in the 16th century and was subsequently rebuilt.The lovely facades of the houses and the ornate fountains date from this time.Even the fire brigade...

The historic square is another place from the long list of UNESCO sites in the Czech Republic. Magnificent square with two rows of old houses made of stone. Every house is different from the adjacent house to it. Each house is painted in other colors. Some of them have stunning graffiti decorated. If it snows, then cold but snow is... More

We planned on a 2 or 3 hour break on a journey from Ceske Budejovice to Slovakia, but stayed less than two. We paid for parking just outside the old town. Easy to find. There are some beautiful vistas, over the water and as you first enter the large square. You understand why it is UNESCO listed, but then realise... More

Picture perfect square in the middle of this small town, as if time stood still. The facades on the centuries old buildings are beautifully restored, each is different and worth taking a picture. Small stores are sort of hidden under the fronts of those buildings. We spend one day in September here and the town appeared very quiet, certainly not... More

We stopped here for an afternoon visit to see the city and the castle. I was very impressed with how well the city center has been preserved and how quiet the town was. The small shops around the square have some unique items, some relating directly to the city center. This is a town that is worth a visit and... More

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
