ST RASTISLAV’S CHURCH

- The symbol of Znojmo’s La Belle Epoque –
When the City of Znojmo began to spread outside the medieval walls and the railway made its way to the city (1871), a new part of the town was laid out on the plains east of the historic city. In the middle of a future large square, a new landmark of Znojmo was erected: a Lutheran church, designed by Viennese architect Ludwig Faigl in 1910. The high tower still dominates the wide area around, and the Neo-Renaissance style combined with some Art Nouveau elements make the church one of the most valuable examples of modern architecture in South Moravia. After the expulsion of Germans from Znojmo in 1945-1947 the church was taken over by the Czech Protestants. At the end of the 20th century it was ceded to the Eastern Orthodox Church. Recently, the building has gone through substantial restoration and it has been newly consecrated to St Rastislav (the second in the line of Great Moravian sovereigns in 9th century).
