Originally a royal water keep founded in the 13th century on the crossroads of several busy trade routes. It obtained its current appearance in thr 16trh century, when the chateau as well as the town center were rebuilt. This development was in part the work of the Jesuit order, which then had a significant presence in the town. Beside the chateau and its park, among the most important monuments is the square – a unique complex of Renaissance and Baroque houses. The houses’ arcades and gables were built according to a integrated plan. Music and visual arts play an important role in Telè’s contemporary life. Cultural events: International folklore festival; French-Czech music academy.
Telc is best reached from the Praha – Brno – Vienna highway. Other connections include the regional bus and rail network.
