Ducal Rotunda of the Virgin Mary and St Catherine

Reviewed By EleP - Vilnius, Lithuania

Even though the Rotunda doesn't look like anything special from the outside, it's definitely worth the fee and the waiting time. The 15 min. or so one is allowed to stay is simply hard to describe in words. It justifies the trip to Znojmo, which otherwise is a quiet, average border town.

Narodni Park Podyji

Reviewed By Beatrix T - Brno, Czech Republic

We only had time to venture a little bit into the national park during our Znojmo visit, but we already want to go back there. There are lots of hiking options, great views from the hilltops, and calming nature all around. Simply great.

Znaimer Untergrund

Reviewed By PavelK_hut - Frydek-Mistek, Czech Republic

The Underground has four circuits. One is a classical (totally easy, suitable even for small children) and three are adrenalin circuits. In my openion, the most beautiful tour is the circuit no 2, which is moderately challenging, but every healthy individual can cope with it. Number 3 is extreme, suitable only for physically fit individuals, because most of the time you spend on your knees or belly.
The entire tour is accompanied by a humorous interpretation of history.

Znojmo City Walls

Reviewed By vakantiejozef - Olen, Belgium

Almost all city walls along the edge of the historic centre remained preserved, the masonry in its original shape consists of more than 10 towers and strongholds. A part of this city wall starts from Jezuitské náměstí amplification belt via ulici Dvořák to náměstí Svobody towards former Horním předměstí (upper city suburb). From this romantic balcony-angle of the main castle defensive belt one can admire the deep Gránice valley, here stood the massive cylindrical tower and other massive artillery strongholds, hence one can descend towards the trough of the Castle to the streets in the modern part of the city.
