ONE OF MORAVIA'S OLDEST TOWN'S
This city we were meant to drive straight past, instead, we stopped an had a look and found there was plenty to see and do!
They advertise it as a.............
"Town of 77 Wonders!"
Znojmo is a ROYAL CITY, founded in1226 by King Ottokar 1.
A Holy Roman Emperor [Sigismund], died here in 1437.
World History happened here.........
In 1809, the armistace was signed for the Battle of Wagram between Napoleon and the archduke Charles.
It is also notable for being the (alleged) birthplace of Leopold Loyka, the driver of Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand's car when Ferdinand was assassinated in Sarajevo 1914, an event which triggered the First World War.
The city is situated on a rock outcropping on the steep left bank of the Thaya River with lots of historical and religious buildings.
To walk the old part of the City and to have a good look, you would need to take about 3 hours or more!
I will tell you about what I saw and did, and this only touches a small amount of Znojmo.
I would like to return one day to stay and to see the rest of this medieval old city.
THE next town we stop at is JAROMERICE NAD ROKYTNOU
This is a lovely Church to have a look inside. The Church and the adjacent Dominican Monastery were built in the middle... more travel advice
