Here time doesn´t fly

Telč is a town in southern Moravia in the Czech Republic. The town was founded in 13th century as a royal water fort on the crossroads of busy merchant routes between Bohemia, Moravia and Austria.

Besides the monumental 17th century Renaissance chateau the most significant sight is the town square, a unique complex of long urban plaza with well-conserved Renaissance and Baroque houses with high gables and arcades; since 1992 all of this has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Prior to the Expulsion of Germans from Czechoslovakia after World War II, Telč had a principally German-speaking population.

Telč make you feel returning to earlier times and for me this little town is one of the most beautiful places I´ve ever seen.
