Enjoy Třebíč Like We Do

Třebíč

The inhabitants of our enchanting town in the Vysočina foothills have always been known for their religious tolerance, thanks to which numerous important Jewish and Christian [památky] have been preserved to this day and registered with UNESCO. Come and see firsthand why we have been bestowed this honour.

Třebíč was once an important centre of Jewish culture in Moravia, evidenced by the dense Jewish quarter with over 120 buildings, two synagogues, rabbinate, [nemocnice] and one of the largest Jewish cemeteries in Central Europe. After what the Jewish quarter lived through under the Nazi occupation, we nearly demolished it ourselves during communism. Thank goodness that we have seen the last of both totalitarian regimes.

In the Jewish quarter there is an educational trail that leads all the way to the Romanesque-Gothic basilica of St. Procopius by the Benedictine monastery, behind which is a fragrant herb [zahrádka] that affords a lovely view of the Jihlava River as it winds through the city. We also like to do the entire walk because we stop in at local establishments to meet our friends behind the bar or kosher winemakers and sample Jewish specialties or treats from the local [pekárna].

Religion aside, people come from all over the world to admire the majestic [hvězda] – star-shaped perimeter walls and the Pilgrimage Church of St John of Nepomuk, set like a jewel in the centre. This unique Baroque-Gothic structure designed by Jan Blažej Santini Aichel is on the UNESCO list and one of our favourite destinations. There are also nice views of the church from the terrace of the chateau café or the banks of the [rybník]. When the pilgrims of today lift their canes, it is often to use them as selfie sticks.
Trips around the Vysočina highlands
The most beautiful thing about this region is the [příroda]. The rolling landscape of hills, forests and meadows dotted with gems of sacred and secular architecture has inspired many of our famed [básníci], writers and artists to produce their greatest works. It even inspires us to show off our Baroque curves in tight, colourful cycling outfits. In low gear, it's poetry in motion.

The protected nature preserve of Žďárské vrchy is criss-crossed with marked cycling trails making it our cycling El Dorado. Both pros and amateurs meet at the Cyklo Aréna Vysočina, where they can enjoy the single-track courses of varying difficulty. If you're not up for so much adrenaline, try the easy cycling path from Žďár to Přibyslav that runs along an old [železnice].
