UNESCO declared the looping streets in the Jewish Quarter and an ornate basilica in Třebíč World Heritage Sites in 2003. The town is first mentioned in 1101, but it was almost completely destroyed in a war in 1468 and then rebuilt. Though known for its historic buildings, Třebíč also has a few modern ones in the art nouveau, cubist, and functionalist styles. Guided tours of the town are available in English from the information center at Karlovo náměstí 53. As in all small towns, very few shops are open on weekends.

If you arrive by bus or train from Prague, keep an eye out for the 19th-century windmill at the west edge of town. The town's tower Městská věz on Martinské Square provides a nice view of the whole city.
