About three hours by coach from Prague, Telc is situated in the south west corner of the Bohemian-Moravian highlands. The town constitutes an urban conservation area and was added to UNESCO's list of world cultural heritage sites in 1992. There's plenty to see in Telc: a chateau and several churches.

The chateau, a part of the architecturally wealthy town, is a unique structure of Moravian Renaissance architecture. The Lords of Hradec gained the original Royal castle in 1664 and enlarged it into a water fortress. The construction of a new Renaissance seat according to B. Maggiís design began in mid-16th century in its place. The preserved original interiors show a true Italian influence. An ornamental garden was landscaped in front of the arcade pass. Aside from the Renaissance interiors, the salons of previous owners of the chateau - the Podstatsky family - are all open to the public, along with preserved furnishings in the Biedermeier style.

See the link below for more information on Telc, including places to stay.
