European Quartet One Melody

Telč has been dubbed the “Venice of Moravia” for its picturesque appearance. It has kept its charm thanks to the preserved historical centre and collection of fishponds and gates. Visitors will be enchanted by the complex of historical houses in Renaissance and Baroque style on the main square, the arcades and facades of which were built according to a single design. The original Royal Moated Fort, dating back to the 13th century has been preserved to this day as has the extensive Renaissance chateau complex with chateau garden.
