There are ordinary cities and there are cities that look like they are an illustration from a book of fairytales. I’m talking about Telč – a UNESCO-protected little town in the southern Moravia region of the Czech Republic. It is a visual delight and an extremely interesting day trip from either Brno or Prague.
Let me share with you 5 great reasons to visit Telč!
1. Colorful gingerbread houses
Rows of picturesque Baroque-Renaissance houses dot the main square. They are the trademark of Telč and truly beautiful architecture to see.
2. The Castle
A beautiful historic city can’t be full without having an imposing castle, right? Telč doesn’t disappoint in this regard. The Castle here is a masterpiece of Baroque and an amazing landmark to explore.
