Jewish Quarter in the city Třebíč, called also Židy, is one of the well-preserved jewish quarter in Europe. In 2003 was this quarter added to the UNESCO World Heritage List. We can find it in the city Třebíč in local part called Zámostí. Židy is the only jewish memory outside of Israel, that was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List. The quarter spreads on the left bank of the river Jihlava, under the rocks of the hill, called Hrádek. An area of jewish quarter is built-up to the limit. Most of the houses haven´t back-yards, farm buildings or gardens. The only garden is Subakov Garden, that was established on a place of one demolished house. The houses are linked together and between them are dark passsages and tortuous streets. The houses are built in renaissance or baroque style. The jewish quarter was established already in 12th century and developed gradually. 123 houses, two synagogues and jewish cemetery remain till today. A reconstruction of old houses began few years ago. Jewish Quarter in Trebic is a popular and visited touristic place.
