Heritage, Coexistence in the Town of Trebic, Trebic, Czech Republic (B)

One thing I’ve noticed when visiting the Czech Republic is how well the country’s Jewish history has been preserved in places. I think Prague is a great example of that, but the town of Trebic in the country’s south is an even better one. Found in the historic region of Moravia, Trebic lies roughly halfway between Brno and Cesky Budejovice. Given how out of the way that is, no wonder Třebíč is an overlooked destination.

Still, if you take the time to visit Trebic, you’ll be rewarded with a scenic town with some great cultural significance. Třebíč is inscribed on the UNESCO world heritage list because of its legacy of coexistence.
