It’s funny how often the smallest destinations can be the most impressive. That regularly seems the case with the Czech Republic, at least for me. The small town of Telč is another in a list of smaller, underrated Czech destinations. Even with one day visiting Telc in the region of southern Moravia, I was floored by how scenic the town was.

Along three sides of this oddly-shaped public square are vibrantly painted houses of Italian renaissance style. With one colourful facade after another, they form a wall of ever-changing design and create one of the prettiest old towns you’re likely to see.
