ST ELISABETH’S CHURCH AND THE FORMER BURGHER HOSPITAL ON VIENNA ROAD

ST ELISABETH’S CHURCH AND THE FORMER BURGHER HOSPITAL ON VIENNA ROAD
- A WITNESS OF MANY BATTLES -
Located outside the city walls below the Lower Gate by Vienna Road, the church was built by the Franciscan friars after 1470 when they settled down in Znojmo. In 1534 the Franciscans moved inside the city and their church and the adjacent cloister was converted into a burgher hospital. The hospital buildings were severely damaged by the Swedes during the Thirty Years’ War. In the second half of the 17th century St Elizabeth’s Church was reconstructed in the Baroque style, retaining some of its Late Gothic features. On July 11th 1809 during the Napoleonic Wars (namely the War of the Fifth Alliance), the church witnessed some of the most dramatic moments of the memorable Battle of Znojmo.
