PRAGUE GATE

PRAGUE GATE

- Where Kings of Bohemia would enter the city –
The Prague Gate (or the Upper Gate) was a major entrance to medieval Znojmo from the north. It was through this gate that all merchants and important legations coming from Bohemia would reach the city. In the oldest phase (13th century) the plain gate in the main city wall was reinforced by a high prismatic gate tower (very similar to the Wolf Tower in the south of the city) where now the offices of Komerční banka stand. As the city fortifications were continuously and systematically improved, the Prague Gate grew into an ingenious system of ditches, suspended bridges, bulwarks and walls. In the 19th century this whole gate fortification was demolished due to the strong imperative that the city be opened to modern traffic and trade. Only the outer barbacan with a gate has remained preserved, though it was incorporated into a house now (nám. Svobody).
