No. of pictures: 18 pictures
Published: 7.4.2011

Historical town of Znojmo, situated along high bank of Dyje-river Valley, belongs to most remarkable sightseeings of South Moravia. Its ancient fame is confirmed with monuments, such as: St.Catherine Rotunda, including unique pictures, many churches as well as monuments of church character, or with labyrinth of subterranean corridors. Town Hall Tower is city dominanta, but it is worth to make a stop in near area of former Jesuits´ Monastery, with Prokopius Diviš bust. This person constructed lighting conductor, as the first one in Europe. Another interesting fact: in 17th century, even Emperor Leopold I. was hidden in complex of Jesuits´ Monastery in front of plague epidemy, which broke out in Vienna. The reminiscences of past periods remind often small streets of old town, including Jewish quarter (where some sections of TV film „Četnické humoresky“- Gendarme Sketches - were filmed there). As another imposant experience, it is wonderful outlook from town´s fortifications downstairs to Dyje-Valley and towards near Louka Monastery. So, if you decide to visit Znojmo, would you take in mind that during autumn wine vintage celebrations, the town centre is full of good wine lovers as well as traditional folklore. And, last but not least, all 77 Znojmo wonders could not be watched within one days only.
