Its “voice” has inspired generations of folk musicians as well as famous composers such as Gustav Mahler and Bohuslav Martinů. The region offers a large number of well-known historic monuments, three of which are listed as UNESCO cultural heritage sites: St. John of Nepomuk’s Church on Zelená hora (“Green Mountain”) in Žďár nad Sázavou, the Jewish quarters with a cemetery and the Romanesque-Gothic basilica of St. Procopius in Třebíč, and the historic centre of Telč with its Renaissance chateau.

Travelling to the Vysočina Region cannot be easier: it is one of its biggest advantages both for holidays and the congress tourism. The journey from Prague to the region’s capital Jihlava takes only 90 minutes by car. The town lies about 130 km from Prague (Prague Airport) along the D1 motorway, and 90 km from Brno Airport, also along the D1 motorway.
