Czech town TelčNational Geographic has recently released its annual Best Trips list, highlighting 25 most exciting destinations for 2020. Among them, a small town located near city Jihlava in the Vysočina Region of the Czech Republic – Telč.

Telč is famous for its town square lined by a rainbow of pastel-hue Renaissance and Baroque houses built in the 16th century. The stone walls and a system of man-made fishponds helped made the historic center of Telč a UNESCO World Heritage site. With resplendent Italian Renaissance architecture, Telč is sometimes called the Czech Florence.

“Positioned midway between Prague to the north and Vienna to the south, the storybook town got its official start in the 14th century as a crossroads on the well-trodden trading routes among Bohemia, Moravia, and Austria,” writes National Geographic which has now placed the town on the list of recommended travel destinations for next year.

Other European locales on the list include the UK’s Wales Way, Poland’s Białowieża Forest, Spain’s Asturias and Canary Islands, Austria’s Grossglockner High Alpine Road, Italy’s Parma, Bosnia and Herzegovina’s Mostar, and Hungary’s National Blue Trail.

The Best Trips list was made through collaboration of the editorial teams of National Geographic Traveler’s 17 international editions with globe-trotting experts to report on the essential and sustainable sites to see in 2020.
