  St. Wenceslas Chantry
by balhannah

This is a dear little Chapel we came across in Znojmo. It is no longer a Chapel, but a place for Art Exhibition's and Concert's.

We had already been to the town of Bucovice, and now we found out, this Chapel was built some time in 1521, because of Catherine of Bucovice!

It was constructed "on" the city wall, high above the Dyje River valley, and next to a Graveyard where there was another chapel, but is no longer.
The chapel?s name is derived from the Gothic statue of St Wenceslas, the Patron Saint of all Czechs, fixed to the entrance front.

I didn't go inside, but I can tell you it has a upper Chapel of St Anne and St Catherine which has a late Gothic vault, one of its kind in all Moravia. The lower chapel of St Martin is where the art exhibitions and concerts are held.
