It is a relatively well preserved area of the former Jewish community, part of the UNESCO heritage. One can have a pleasant walk among the houses, and then take a trip to the Basilica, a bit farther from the narrow old streets. You can plan with a 1-2 hours trip if around.

Trebic is a magical place: in a few steps you can stroll in one of the best preserved ghetto of the world or in a wonderful XII sec church. I enjoyed a walk in the Jewish quarter in a cold, cold December morning; snow was everywhere, the river was almost entirely covered with ice and walking between the silent, desert... More

The Jewish Quarter and the Basilica svatého Prokopais is closed to each other They are UNESCO Heritage Sites. A few minutes' walk between. It is convenient to park near the Basilica and pass through the Tourist Information. Take a map of the Jewish Quarter and continue the tour. TŘEBÍČ municipality also provided a nice site that does a pretty good... More

The basilica of St. Procopius was a good stop, especially with the guide provided. Lots of information that wasn't in any of the guide books I had read. Amazing frescoes, architecture, crypt. Jewish Quarter wasn't much to behold. Did go into the Rear Synogogue. Was interesting. Ask to borrow the booklet that outlines the highlights of the interior. Continued on... More

I can understand some people can be disappointed by the looks of the "Jewish Quarter" - I am afraid it needs major restoration pretty soon (as well as many other parts of the town). However if you look closely you can come across a number of interesting details in the crooked streets. The Jewish cemetery is surprisingly large, with the... More

The site consists of a few cobbled lanes with somewhat unremarkable old buildings in a state of disrepair, a rather fine basilica which makes little concession to the visitor in terms of accessible information and a Jewish cemetery at the top of a hill which contains some moving monuments to the Holocaust, though it's worth remembering that by then most...

As you enter this part of Trebic you enter part of real history. It is no a Hollywood-Disney-McD-Coca Cola feel good picture of what happend in the last several hunderds of years. This is the way people lived, the good, the bad and the ugly. If you are close to this city have a look at this site as is... More

Although this is a World Heritage Site (the Jewish Quarter together with the basilica), is nice, but average place compared to other sites in the Czech Republic. And the city itself is really poor. It's better to visit other places, e.g. close Telc. If you want to go into the basilica, you must pay for the tour, which is every... More

We were so disappointed with Trebic and the Jewish Quarter. It was just a bunch of crumbling, forgettable buildings and nothing worthwhile to see. I never took one photo in the Jewish quarter and only took about two in the whole town. I suggest you skip Trebic and go to Telc instead. It was a beautiful, charming town worth spending... More

I visited Trebic in July of 2008 and it was a wonderful break from the crowds and confusion. Of all the Jewish sites I visited, this was a most impactful. So lovingly restored, both the Basilica and Quarter were a joy to walk around and photograph. The Traveller's Hostel was AMAZING!
