“Chateau with piece of Czech history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

Chateau is one of the most beautiful in Czech republic, more than 60 Czech fairy tales were shooted here and a lot of history take place here. There is big collection of arts, weapons, throphies and most beautiful are decorative cellings. Interesting about them is that they are a lot motives against the church ( like burning pope, devil with symbol of founder of castle, jew riding the pig etc. ) . Definetly worth of visiting.

“The gem of Moravian Renaissance architecture”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014

In addition of visiting the central urban plaza in Telc, with the rows of picturesque renaissance houses, we went,accompanied by our tour guide, to see the State Chateau or Statni zamek Telc, that is located very near, to the west from plaza, toward the Telc Creek or rather we can name it as Telc Pond. There are three of them, that surround this old town quart.
This Chateau is very attractive by its gothic style of architecture and You can see that original interiors are preserved in very good condition, that's only telling us about the very careful approach of the owners to its heritage. The most noticeable influence is of Italian art on the Czech territory and also of its variations in the area north of the Alps.
Very nice, indeed, are the ceilings in every room, You pass through,painted and decorated in own way. So, You can perceive here the paintings, woodcarvings and trophies.
Also, much impressive is the Golden Hall, stretching across the entire wing of the younger Renaissance Northern Palace, with some beautiful portraits of the local historic persons.
Too, You may perceive the carvings on the squares of the waffle ceilings. These are the mainly figures of ancient gods and mythological heroes.
There is a Church Tower, within the walls of the Chateau, that we mounted to take some wonderful view on the old town Telc and pleasant surroundings of the countryside, at the top of it.
Not to miss when You are in Telc.

Actually this chateau is probably not the best place around, but it’s quite famous due some fairy tales were filmed here and because it is in Telc. On the other hand it is just a regular chateau with common historic interiors, but you know. When you come, you should go to see it ;-) In fact for someone it may be confusing that even to entry garden you need to pay a fee.
But when you are a fan of history or chateaus you should go there as it is always somehow interesting.

“Check out the ceilings!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

We spent a delightful afternoon at the Chateau, mainly with a tour guide (which is the only way you can go inside). The history of the place is most impressive. The ceilings in each of the rooms were so unique and gorgeous. Unfortunately, photography was not allowed, so I couldn't take any photos of them.

“Spectacular views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

Telc is such a small town, you can see it all. We did not go through a tour of the Chatueau (because of time), but enjoyed some of the grounds. We did, however, go up into the church tower there to see the huge bells and the magnificent views at the top. The countryside was beautiful! We felt we were looking out over a magical town, nearly expecting to see Willy Wonka at any moment!
