Znojmo: Its History and Monuments

In the beginning of the 11th century, when the Czech state was still only a principality and not a kingdom, the region around the present city of Znojmo became one of its frontier regions. Already before 1055 the Czech prince Břetislav (Friedrich) founded a castle on the Znojmo hill, but the rotunda is only part that has survived in its original form. Its romanesque frescos make it one of the most important national landmarks. For Central European intellectuals it may be of interest to learn that the emperor Sigismund died at Znojmo in December of 1437. He was returning to Buda (today’s Budapest) after chairing the Landtag (assembly of Estates) in Cheb (Eger). The weather was unusually bad and travel was exhausting. When he arrived at Znojmo he was so tired and ill that he fell off his horse, and after several days he died of exhaustion, presumably at the Znojmo castle. The spot of his misfortune is marked by a sidewalk tile in the present Masaryk square. Znojmo offers many highlights, such as the gothic St. Nicholas church, medieval fortifications, and renaissance and baroque residences of nobles and rich burghers, all located within a walking distance from the hotel Prestige.
