Trebic

Trebic was once an important centre of Jewish life and culture in Moravia and it is one of the oldest Jewish settlements in the country. The very well preserved Jewish quarter boasts more than 120 original densely built houses, narrow and crooked alleys, dark corners and charming squares. Two synagogues, the Town Hall, school house, rabbinate and poorhouse are still preserved here. The Rear Synagogue, decorated with paintings from the 18th century, houses an exhibition on the history of the former ghetto. The Front Synagogue serves today as a prayer hall of the Czechoslovak Hussite Church.

The nearby Jewish cemetery with its more then 3,000 tombstones, the oldest from 1625, is among the best preserved Jewish cemeteries in the Czech Republic.

Since 2003, the Jewish Town in Trebic has been included on the UNESCO list of the world cultural and natural heritage.

Trebic is also known for its Romanesque-Gothic Basilica of St Procopius, originally consecrated to the Virgin Mary and built as the church of the Benedictine monastery. The basilica features a remarkable crypt with a seven-hundred year old timbered ceiling, the presbytery with cross vaulting, a beautiful rose window as well as the northern portal, which is a unique piece of stone masonry.

Trebic is situated in Western Moravia about 180km from Prague. The drive takes about 2.5 hours.

It is possible to combine a trip to Trebic with a visit of Polna. Polna is a small town situated about 36km from Trebic. The former Jewish ghetto originating in 1681, comprising of 32 houses, a synagogue from 1684, as well as the Jewish cemetery with about 900 tombstones, have survived till this day. The synagogue houses the Regional Jewish museum and is open to the public from May to September.
