We think Telc is Moravia's prettiest Renaissance town—things seem unchanged since the 1530s, which is why UNESCO made it a World Heritage site.

For defensive reasons, Telc was set on a peninsula and surrounded by three ponds 85 mi/135 km southeast of Prague. (Fresh fish is a specialty of the town's cafe menus.) A city wall marks the base of the peninsula, and the Water Chateau forms the other end. In between sit the baroque Jesuit church, Gothic St. James Church and the town square (which has an arcade).

Just 15 mi/25 km to the south is Slavonice, another museum-piece village.
