TREBIC

St. Procopius´ Basilica in Trebic

The abbot´s church, initially dedicated to Virgin Mary, was built in the early 13th century as a part of the Benedictine Monastery founded in 1101. The basilica ranks among the pearls of medieval architecture. Its Romanesque style shows also some Gothic elements. The church was largely damaged when Trebic was besieged by Matthias Corvinus´ army in 1468, and was then used for secular purposes for more than two centuries. After its renovation by Frantisek Maxmilian Kanka in 1725-1731 it was used again for sacral purposes and dedicated to St. Procopius.

In 2002, the basilica was proclaimed national cultural monument.

Jewish Quarter of Trebic

The Jewish Quarter of Trebic, placed on the prestigious UNESCO World Heritage List on 3rd July 2003, is a unique document of Jewish culture in Moravia and the only Jewish monument outside Israel specifically placed on the UNESCO List. The area still exhibits its historical layout and structure that has developed in the limited area between the Jihlava River and the hill of Hradek. The Quarter exhibits a mysterious atmosphere with its tortuous streets, dark nooks, vaulted passages and other typical features. Unforgettable view of the romantic Jewish Quarter roofs can be enjoyed from Hradek Hill.

Today, no original population is available in the former Jewish Quarter. Therefore, many buildings, such as the town hall, rabbi´s office, hospital, poorhouse or school, do not serve their original purpose any more.

It is possible to visit a Jewish ritual bath Mikveh from 17th century in the ground floor of the hotel Joseph. To taste the Jewish cakes in the local cafe and to visit the house where survived the original well from the middle ages.

Jewish Cemetery in Trebic

The Jewish Cemetery was established behind the town, over the Tynsky Brook, probably in the early 17th century (the first written document mentioning the cemetery dates from 1636), and was extended in 1888 by adding a new area. With its size of almost twelve thousand square metres it ranks among the largest Jewish cemeteries in the country. The burial-ground, surrounded by a massive stone wall, contains almost 3000 tombstones (the oldest one dates from 1625), including some valuable stones of Baroque and neo-Classical type. A number of important persons are buried here, such as the rabbis Pollak, both father and son.

The cemetery, which is one of the most important and the best maintained Jewish cemeteries in Moravia, is rightly protected as a national cultural monument. As a part of the Jewish Quarter it was placed on the UNESCO List in 2003.
