Telč Chateau was originally built as a Gothic castle. In the middle of the 16th century it was rebuilt by Zacharias of Hradec as a Renaissance residence. This style has been preserved in the interior even today. Part of the chateau complex is the castle underground and the castle garden with a park.
The square of Zacharias of Hradec is lined with picturesque houses with arcades. Houses of typical city scenery. Arcades, facades and shields were built individually. The renaissance character preserved only some of them. Most facades and shields also bear Baroque, and other styles.
A very interesting place is the Telč’s underground under the square Zacharias of Hradec.
Under most of the houses on the square, but also under the part of the castle complex are medieval cellars. The cellars were connected by corridors, the accessible part of which is nearly 150 m long and offers an interactive entertainment and educational exhibition.
