Characteristics of the region
The region is one of the least densely populated and boasts some of the cleanest environment in the country; hence its nickname – ?the green heart? of the Czech Republic.

This region is ideal for active relaxation and recreation. The Renaissance town of Telč (pictured here; click for larger view), the town if Třebíč with its well-preserved Jewish quarter and old town and the pilgrimage Church of St. John of Nepomuk at Zelená Hora near Žďár nad Sázavou belong among most popular sights in the region.
