UNESCO heritage

Třebíč dates from 1101 when a Benedictine monastery was established here. The city soon after became an important centre for religious life and education. Today it is an important economic, administrative, political and cultural centre in south-west Moravia. The city offers a wide range of active recreation opportunities in the picturesque environment of the foothills of the Czech-Moravian Vysočina (Highland) region. The city was once a centre of Jewish culture in Moravia and the uniquely preserved Jewish Quarter bears silent witness to the cohabitation between Jews and Christians in this city. When we take our tour we will go to the Jewish quarter and the Basilica of St. Prokop, which was inscribed on the UNESCO list in 2003.


Explore the beauty of the St. Procopius Basilica in Třebíč. This monument with a unique blend of Gothic and Romanesque architecture is registered on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
