JEWISH HERITAGE TOURS

 

 

THE UNESCO TOWNS OF TELC AND TREBIC

approx. 9-10 hours

 


TREBIC

 

The small town of Trebic has got two jewels listed by UNESCO.
It is the former Benedictine Abbey founded in 1001. Its granite Basilica in transitional Romanesque style is one of the most important buildings in the country. The second complex of a greater interest is the former Jewish ghetto. In 1433 the first Jews were mentioned here. Quite a large settlement of 1.490 people in 1835 lived between the river Jihlava and the hill „Hradek“. The whole Jewish area comprising of 123 houses has been preserved till today. You will see the ghetto with everything that was necessary for its running - Rabbinate, School, two Synagogues and the cemetery with 2.600 tombstones.

 


TELC

 

The second town which is only 36 km away from Trebic is the town of Telc. The 16th century governor of Moravia Zacharias of Hradec turned Telc into his principal seat. The Renaissance beauty of the town testifies to its heyday under Zacharias´ rule. There is no modern building spoiling the historical centre of the town. It looks like the backcloths of a stage setting for some Renaissance feast. The Telc castle is one of the nicest surprises in the country, it is simple yet very nice and it has fascinating interior with magnificent coffered ceilings.
