Telč - Tour of the city 2

Map of the tour.

We can begin our tour by entering through the Svatodušní věž (Tower of the Holy Spirit) (1), from where we will have beneath us Telč and its vicinity. Of note are the townhouses, the two fountains in the eastern part of the square (2) and the Marian Plague Column (3), and the parish church of St. Jakub at the north-western tip of the square with its mighty, sixty-metre spire dating from the fourteenth century. We can also see the renaissance castle (5), closed in by the blue water surfaces, interrupted by several causeways. We leave Náměstí Zachariáše z Hradce along Palackého Street passing the Svatodušní věž and the Horní brána (Upper gate) (6) and we arrive at the Ulického fish pond causeway. At the baroque statue of the‘anděl Strážce’(Guardian Angel) (7) we turn diagonally downwards under the causeway on the road known as Na dlážkách (Boardwalk), which leads us to the Church of Matky Boží (Mother of God) (8) in the Staré Město (Old Town). We pass through the gate into the cemetery and immediately by the entrance to the church there is a plaque that commemorates its establishment 1099. Next to the cemetery is the hospital and its chapel. We walk along Špitální Street (Hospital Street) to the Staroměstský rybník (Old Town Fishpond) causeway, where we pass by the former steam mill (9) and continue along the narrow path around the fishpond. We then go down Mašková, Na Korábě and Svatoanenská Streets (10) and arrive at the gateway to the St. Anna cemetery (1676) (11) with its statue of St. Donát. From here we continue along Na Parkáně Street to the former Jewish Synagogue (12), built at the beginning of the last century and closed down during the Second World War. This is where our tour ends.

Maybe you were unaware that...

  • The oldest monument in the town is the 49-metre Romanesque ‘Svatodušní věž’ (Column of the Holy Spirit) dating from the 13th century. Next to it is the small empore-style church, rebuilt in the gothic style in the 15th century.
  • At the end of the causeway, where the road splits into Hradecká and 9. května Streets there is a granite devotional pillar dating from 1480, one of the oldest of its kind in the Vysočina (highland) region.
  • For tours of the town you can use the services of the “Okružní jízda Telčí – Tour of Telč”, which will provide you with a commentary on the history and monuments of the town. It stops at the Oslednice viewing tower which you can climb up as part of the tour, and your mode of transport will be an air-conditioned minibus for 9 persons.
