Ledeč nad Sázavou - Czech Republic

Almost a week without any updates but i'm back and i'll continue with czech cards. This is another one sent by Emerich.

Ledec nad Sazavou is the third largest town in the Havlickuv Brod region. The local castle is the dominant here. Its history is close-nit to the town history. The castle has been established at the first half of 13th century.

Right opposite the castle, on the left Sazava river bank, there is a church from 14th century sacred to St. Apostles Petr and Pavel. Above the castle there is another point of interest- the Thune’s villa from 1685- 1694. It used to be a summer residence of archbishop Arnost from Thun. Beside this there are many others place to see- significant municipal houses, the cemetery church of “Holy Trinity” from 1585, the synagogue from the year of 1739 and the Jewish cemetery established in 1601- one of the eldest in Czech Republic. - in:
