This is a sketch of the Bohemian town of Teplitz (now modern day Teplice in the Czech Republic). It was taken from the Königshöhe, the heights overlooking Teplitz from which Turner was afforded a better view of the town’s principal buildings. Prominent among them is the Dekanalkirche, Schlosskirche and Palace on the Schlossplatz.
