Telc owes its present look to Zacharias of Hradec. When he chose Telc as his seat of power he began grand reconstructions of both the castle and the town. The castle was converted from gothic to renaissance, sporting gardens and lovely reflecting ponds.
The interior of Zacharias' chateau or castle is very much the same as it was in his day. There are grand drawing rooms and ballrooms with coffered ceilings that remind one of the gaudiness found in the more germanic cities such as Wurzburg and Bamberg.
Unfortunately photography was forbidden in the interior of the chateau. Therefore, I'm left with this stolen shot (I took it from the outside of the chateau looking in) of the mausoleum meant to be the final resting place of the long lineage of the lords of Hradec. But that was not to be--the Telc estate fell into the Liechtenstein family when the Hradec lods could produce no male heirs.
