About Třešť

Třešť is known as a town of Christmas nativity scenes. Local families often own and maintain those with dozens to hundreds of figures typically carved of wood in their homes. Some of them welcome visitors to see them between Christmas and beginning of February. Třešť is also a place where young Franz Kafka spent his holidays from 1900 to 1907 with his uncle Siegfried Löwy, M.D., and a small exposition on his relation to Třešť can be visited in the Jewish synagogue.
