Telč (Czech pronunciation: [tɛltʃ]; German: Teltsch) is a town in southern Moravia, near Jihlava, 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 with an English-style park (a rebuilding of original Gothic castle), 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.
The Gothic castle was built in the second half of the 14th century. At the end of the 15th century the castle fortifications were strengthened and a new gate-tower built. In the middle of the 16th century the medieval castle no longer satisfied Renaissance nobleman Zachariá of Hradec, who had the castle altered in the Renaissance style. The ground floor was vaulted anew, the facade decorated with sgraffito, and the state apartments and living quarters received stucco ornamentation together with trompe l'oeil paintings and chiaroscuro in 1553. The counter-reformation brought the Jesuits to the town, who built the church, Name of Jesus, in 1666-1667, according to the plans of Domenico Orsi. The column of the Virgin and the fountain in the centre of the square date from the 18th century.
Prior to the Expulsion of Germans from Czechoslovakia after World War II, Telč had, as did its neighbor Jihlava, a principally German-speaking population.

What a row of beautiful façades! I like the oblique point of view and the long deep perspective. The colours and detail are well rendered under a pleasant ambient light. You were lucky to have few cars and tourists to mar this wonderful view. Have a fine weekend.

Fantastic colors of the many facades in a long row, Georg.
There is no lense, the widest to show the impossible taking of the whole in one shot.
Yet, managed great depth aloong, clarity and colors that mingle beautifully above the countless archs.
Admirable and impressive.
Enjoy your weekend,

Hello Georg - The facades here are stunningly beautiful with their decorative gables and window surrounds. I'm surprised too by the arched arcades, I don't think I've seen this feature on Baroque architecture before. I can see why this is a World Heritage Site as it is a remarkable long line of attractive and well preserved buildings. Your shot show them off well as we can enjoy the very long line and variety of colours. Very nice! Warm regards Rosemary

la più bella città della repubblica ceca insieme a Praga.
Ne hai saputo fare un soggetto splendido per la composizione e la cura del colore saturo quanto basta per metterne in evidenza le caratteristiche.
Ciao e buon fine settimana
