Telc (UNESCO)
Telc is one of the best preserved ancient towns in the Czech Republic. A combination of pure Renaissance and Baroque buildings, typically grouped, makes Telc one of finest examples of medieval urban architecture. The magnificent square, surrounded by arcaded houses and with a Baroque fountain in its centre, still retains the atmosphere of the Renaissance period. The chateau was originally a Gothic castle from the 14th century, but in the second half of the 16th century it was converted into the Renaissance building. The chateau interiors have rich decoration, carved and painted ceilings, frescoes, and other splendid features.
Trebic (UNESCO) Trebic Jewish Ghetto – one of the oldest Jewish settlements was a naturally-evolving urban structure , complete with every element typical of a Jewish ghetto - maximum use of the available space made further evolution of its buildings impossible. There were built a town hall , rabbinate , school, hospital, poorhouse , etc. – together 123 numbered houses aside from two synagogues . It is the best preserved original Jewish quarter in Europa protected by UNESCO . The Jewish Cemetery – today it is one of the biggest cemeteries of its kind in the Central Europa , with the area 11772 sq. metres.

On a hill, near the monastery , this excellent architect designed a unique structure of five-tail-star ground plan ( the five stars were supposed to be reflecting in the Vltava river when hangmen threw the latter saint down from the Charles bridge and became one of his attributes ).
