Telc is located in SW Moravia, 30km from
the Austrian border, midway between Brno and Ceske Budejovice.
It is a picturesque, historic town whose central main square
has changed little in design over the last 4 centuries. The town's
pastel-colored, 16th C. renaissance style architecture was created
by Italian craftsmen, originally commissioned to rebuild the
castle, they stayed on to make their homes in the town. Telc's
historic center was added to UNESCO'S register of World Heritage
sites in 1992.
The town center almost seems to be a small
island as it is surrounded on 3 sides by water. After exploring
the main sights, wander away from the center and enjoy the lake
If traveling between Brno and Ceske Budejovice,
it's possible to break journey and spend a few hours in Telc
en route rather than try to see it on a day trip (2hours each
way by bus). You may be able to leave your backpack at the Tourist
Office in the main aquare or at the train station.Supposed to
be left luggage facility at train station BUT no staff were there
when I checked.
