This is the pretty area beside the River Dyje and below Znojmo Castle.
Long time ago, there was a Stone Mill and a Ford over the river, both have been replaced, one with a bridge over the River, and the other, a Power Station
The area used to have lots of shanties and small houses which belonged to fishermen and paupers, tanners and skinners had workshops there. The "right" to fish in the river belonged to the Abbot of Louka in the Middle Ages, not to burghers!

In 1834 the Dyje Quarter was incorporated into the city and a swimming pool made in the River below the ?Giant?s Head?.
Since 1945 life in the Dyje Quarter slowed, German speaking citizen's were told to leave, and the Znojmo Reservoir was built, burying the old swimming pool under water. The area looks different now, and is a nice place for walking from the Villa Krammer and finishing by a weir near the Louka Abbey.
