About the Tour

Immerse yourself in the unusual history, culture, and architecture of Telč. On this walking tour, you’ll take in the colorful pastel Baroque and Renaissance homes, known as the “painted ladies,” flanking its gorgeous medieval town square. We’ll pause and hear the backstory behind several of these striking examples of sgraffito architecture before venturing beyond the square. This medieval town has plenty of intriguing nooks and crannies to explore, and we’ll wander down a few of its alleyways too.

Telč’s historic centre was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1992 and, recently, National Geographic recognized the town as one of the top 25 destinations in the world. On this walk, you’ll hear about the town’s overlooked history and forgotten stories, see jaw-dropping architecture, and visit several off-the-beaten path places, as well as iconic sites. Bring your camera – you’ll need it to photograph the beautifully preserved sgraffito architecture!

Whether it’s your first time in Telč or you’re a curious history buff eager to uncover the town’s hidden corners, this 90-minute walk will keep you captivated and have you yearning for more intriguing tales.

How VoiceMap Works

Focus on your surroundings, not the screen

VoiceMap’s audio tour app uses GPS to play audio automatically, at the right time and place. Just install it, then download your tour and go to the starting point to begin your walk, drive, cycle, train trip or even boat ride.

Follow a route with turn-by-turn-directions

Tours follow a route from a fixed starting point. This is how we provide turn-by-turn directions. It also helps publishers tell a story greater than the sum of its parts. But you can use Resume to pick up a tour from the closest location whenever you like.

Listen as many times as you like

You can listen to your tours as often as you like using both the VoiceMap app and the VoiceMap website. Your access to tours doesn’t expire.

Take virtual tours anywhere

Just select Virtual mode in the VoiceMap app to listen to tours at home – or anywhere else. You’ll see the option after you download the tour. You can also listen to the whole tour here on the website.

Buy for less on and sync

Once you’ve purchased a tour, it’s added to your VoiceMap library. If you sign into the app using the same method you used on the website, you’ll have access to your full library of tours in both places.

Use VoiceMap offline

The VoiceMap app works entirely offline if there’s no data connection, so you don’t have to pay roaming fees. Just download the tour over WiFi before you get started.
