Towns and villages on the track


The town of Třebíč lies on both banks of the Jihlava River. The beginnings of the town are connected with the foundation of the Benedictine monastery in 1101.

The Jewish town with the Jewish cemetery and the Basilica of St. Prokop have been listed as UNESCO cultural heritage, which proves their uniqueness.

The basilica was built in the 1st half of the 13th century in Romanesque style with Gothic elements and belongs to the treasures of medieval architecture of European importance. In its close vicinity stands the Valdštejn castle, today a museum.

The Jewish town with 123 houses is unique in Europe. The Jewish cemetery was founded in the early 17th century and is one of the most precious cemeteries in the Czech Republic.

Interesting sights are the tower clock with the biggest hands in Europe and one of the largest squares in the Czech Republic. Worth seeing are also constructions by the architect Fuchs (the former savings bank, the river bath) or Gočár (UP factory), the Gothic Church of St. Martin, the Painted House and others. The landmark of the town is the 72 metre high town tower. The gallery of the tower is accessible to the public.
