Znojmo Things to Do

  • St Nicholas's Church and St Wenceslas's...

    Saint Nicholas's Church dates back to around 1100. St Nicholas is the patron saint of merchants. It was free to enter the church. It was quiet and peaceful inside.St Wenceslas's Chapel had an exhibition inside and a viewpoint outside.

  • Znojmo's Castle and St Catherine's...

    We could not go in to either building as we had no Czech money through foolishly thinking the Czechs had converted to the Euro only to find the Czech crown very much in evidence. There is an entrance way to the castle next to the brewery. You will go into a little building with tourist info. No need to pay here, pass through and go down the stairs....

  • Wolf Tower and city walls.

    When we walked into the centre of the old town from the train station the first sight we came to was Wolf Tower and a stretch of city walls.

    This is a lovely Church to have a look inside.The Church and the adjacent Dominican Monastery were built in the middle of the 13th century, but after a "great fire," when a precious fragment of the Holy Cross was lost, and the building was greatly damaged, a new Church was built.So, it now date's to the 17th century and has a nice Barouqe Entrance...

  • SVOBODA HOUSES

    The Svoboda house in my photo is the biggesty historic building in Znojmo's city centre This Neo-Baroque buiding looked like a Chateau to me, but have since found out that it is a block of flats.

  • ST. JOHN THE BAPTIST CHURCH

    I came into Masaryk Square to see many market tables but no market! Obviously, it was the wrong day!Also here, was the Church of St. John the Baptist and the Capuchin Monastery, which were built in 1628 under the instruction's of Roman Emperor Ferdinand II.Inside is the way of the Capuchin, their ideals of simplicity and poverty. In 1754 a new...

In past it was mainly used as an observation point of town preservation. The upper part of tower is decorated by two ambits above each other and by 8 small turrets and spire in its...

  • rent a car...explore

    we got a very elderly Skoda from the local gangsters and set off into the South Moravian hinterland, just taking pot luck from the guidebook. We ended up at Vranov nad Dyji, to the west of Znojmo. Beautiful castle, no touroids (just a few locals on a Sunday afternoon). Loved it. Castle dates back to 14 century. Built high on a cliff above the Dyje...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hostan seemed to be the local beer and the Hostan brewery was right next to the castle and rotunda. Would not have minded trying one - next time when we have some money.

    Hostan brewery.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We went to Znojmo the day after going to Sopron. Sopron was full of money changers, but Znojmo had very few and they were all shut on a Saturday afternoon as were the banks, Obviously they will also be shut on Sundays.
