I stayed over in Brno and did a day trip to this beautiful town. I was thinking to use the public bus from behind the Brno train station. But, couldnt find my way there. So, I used the Flixbus right across "Grand Hotel". The bus ride was about an hour through beautiful countryside. Trebic is not very big. Town square is about 10 minute walk from the bus stop. The tourist information center is by the town square. They were very helpful. We went there on a sunday, found out there was no public bus back to Brno. Only option left was the train. I will talk about that later. The beautiful Jewish Quarter and Trebic Castle is on the other side of the river.Soon as we crossed the bridge into the Jewish Quarter, I fell in love with the town. It was away from tourist crowd, nice and quiet, and definately gave me a feeling of quiet medieval town, the houses, ally ways, neighborhood cafe...All the sudden, it was back to the history. Time was slow down for us as well. Every corner was great photo shot. The train ride back to Brno was fantastic. It was over an hour and scenary on the way back was gorgeous. Train went back to the train station by the "Grand Hote;" in Brno. By the way, there are 2 train stations in Brno.

If travelling from Prague to Vienna or vice versa, then it makes sense to stop halfway and visit this Unesco heritage that surprisingly wasn't dominated by coach loads of tourists. The information centre is located a couple of buildings away from the Rear Synagogue, but in the centre you can obtain a map that will help you navigate to the attractions and the JQ itself. You cannot park your vehicle inside the village, only if your a resident. There is side street that runs parallel with the main road, just before the entrance to JQ, but pay and display is required with coin only machine. Opposite the parking is the only original building remaining (technically it's just outside the JQ), the exterior is mustard colour with it's purpose serving as a daytime bazar. Was nice to walk around the village and see buildings and walkways all at different heights and colours, with cobbled streets and few stores trading for business. But don't get to excited as most of these buildings have been rebuilt, and are now normal houses to non-jews. But some of the old establishments ie hospital and school now have plaques on the designated houses...

Trebic may have been the highlight of our week in the Czech Republic. Prague. We had to rent a car from Prague to there but overall the experience of doing so was manageable. Trebic has a fascinating but sad history. For many centuries the Christian community lived in harmony with a Jewish community, albeit separated by a river. The Jewish Quarter was very advanced with a hospital, school and other amenities and a synagogue. However, Hitler rounded up all 1500 families and sent them to concentration camps and only 10 people survived and returned. When those people died, so did the Quarter. The area became dilapidated but through intervention it was restored and now represents one of the oldest intact Jewish quarter is existing in Europe. The old synagogue and one house are available for tours, but you can walk the narrow, cobble stone streets. Many of the homes in the Jewish quarter are now occupied by Roma (gypsies). You get a sense of what it was like centuries ago. . And unlike the hoards of tourists who go to the Jewish Quarter in Prague you will have this area of Trebic virtually to yourself. It is worth the day trip from Prague. From the Jewish Quarter you can walk to the Jewish Cemetery which is well preserved. On the way, you can get some excellent views of the city.

We stopped here on the way to Prague. There honestly is not much to see. The basilica is nice, but the Jewish Quarter is only a coupe of blocks.
