HISTORY & CULTURE
MAX TOUR CAPACITY
Depart Prague and head to Telč, a fairy tale town situated in the Moravia. The town center was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1992, and represents a great architectural jewel. The history of this laid-back town dates back to the 12th century, but after the big fire which hit the town in the 16th century, the whole city center had to be renovated.
Lunch will be served at the second UNESCO-listed town of Třebíč. This town has been shaped by multiple cultural and religious influences. Begin by visiting the famous Jewish Quarter which began to be developed in the 14th century. Later, visit the nearby Basilica of St. Procopius. The Basilica dates back to the 13th century and is the first example of western architecture in central Europe. The main door has incredibly detailed stone carvings, and there are wonderful golden artworks inside. Both of these monuments are recognized by UNESCO as an important cultural site, but more importantly they demonstrate an unusual religious tolerance between the Jewish and the Christians from the Middle Ages through to the 20th century.
Your next destination will be another UNESCO World Heritage Site: the Pilgrimage Church of Saint John of Nepomuk on the Zelená Hora. It is another Moravian jewel which was constructed in honor of St. John of Nepomuk, the Czech martyr who was drowned in the Vltava River because he refused to divulge the secrets of the confessional. The concept of the church is very unique and was very modern for its time. Santini combined the Baroque style with Gothic elements in both construction and decoration. Once done exploring this church, return to Prague where your tour will end.

Local tour guide
I had been in Prague for a few days and decided to spend my last day escaping and seeing a different side of the Czech Republic. Marek was the perfect guide; experienced, friendly, spoke English well and had a clear love for where he lives. The hike was not too difficult and afterwards we had lunch at the perfect place with options for everyone's preferences. I highly recommend this trip and Marek as a guide.
