As some of you surely know, “Good King Wenceslas” is a popular British Victorian carol. Whether you have already known this fact or just now learnt about it, you are probably wondering what it has to do with Czech Christmas.

Would you like to visit the city from the Czech fairy tales? Telč is your place to go! It may be a small city but the moment you set foot into the city square it all will be worth it. The world around Telč may have changed and the historical heart of the city itself went through several reconstructions but it managed to preserve its unique combination of baroque and renaissance style. This and the beautiful nature decorated with old remains of a castle nearby makes it a hot tourist spot.
