“Stunning square”

Historic Centre of Telc
Ranked #1 of 11 things to do in Telc
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed August 17, 2014

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 free audioguides which tell a rather camp but informative story of the houses within the square. Combining this with popping into the many shops, some of which sell high quality stuff, kept us occupied for much of a day.

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 wild, just the feeling that despite all the history, present-day reality is happening there, too, and I missed this feeling here during our brief visit.

On a more practical note: I appreciated that the town provided free access to a public toilet quite close to the main square - this is something of a nice piece of generosity which goes down very well.

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 trip.

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.

If you are in the area, drive by and spend a few hours in this beautiful historic town protected by UNESCO. The town square was perfectly charming and the lake and park surrounding the castle was very beautiful and romantic.
