Little Known Znojmo

When one thinks of the Czech Republic, Prague always comes in mind. Bill Pfeffer discovers A Little Known Village in the Czech Republic named Znojmo, three hours south of Prague that is something to be explored. Check out the excerpts below!

“Arriving by bus from the Czech town of Brno, we were captivated with our first sighting of Znojmo (pronounced ‘Zaw No Way Moe’). The dominant church spire of St. Nicholas Church overlooks the terra cotta roofs of the village below, as they appear to be kneeling in homage during worship at a Sunday Mass.”

“Top Bicycle is a full service company that will drop off and pick up bicycles between a range of cities in the Czech Republic. They will transport your baggage, arrange lodging along your route, and provide GPS programmed itineraries. You can rent bikes for the day from the Cycling Information Center located right next door to the visitor’s center off the main square. Head off for the day to the local wineries, an excursion that the tourist brochures tout as ‘wine cycling’.”

“A one-hour train through cornfields and vineyards will take you to the picturesque village of Mikulov, dominated by a Baroque Chateau that sits upon a hill in the center of town. On a lazy Saturday morning, colorfully clad cyclists congregated in the town square, eager to explore the many roads that radiate into the surrounding countryside. Cafes, souvenir shops, galleries and places to stay edge the square, while a friendly tourist information center dispenses excellent brochures and information.”
