Trebic Castle

Formerly a Benedictine abbey founded in 1101 by the Moravian Przemyslides was rebuilt into an aristocratic palace in the 16th century. The highlight of the castle (and former monastery) is St. Procopius´ Basilica placed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Its design represents a transition between the Romanesque and the Gothic style and was influenced by a late-Romanesque building school that had come to this region from southwestern France.

The photo was taken in April 2005 from the bank of the Jihlava river.
