Photographer's Note

photo taken in telc which is a town in southern Moravia, near Jihlava, in the Czech Republic.

The main square in Telč, with the famous 16th century houses.It contains a castle and a long urban plaza with well-conserved Renaissance houses; since 1992 all of this has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The builder of the castle was Zachariáš of Hradec, after whom the plaza was named; his name is also related to that of the city of Jindřichův Hradec.

Telč was founded in the mid-14th century; the Roman-style tower for the Holy Spirit proves that there was already a settlement there. The city walls and the Church of the Ascension of Mary are Gothic in style.

Until 1945 Telč had, as did its neighbor Jihlava, a principally German-speaking population.
