ST WENCESLAS’S CHANTRY

• 8. St Wenceslas’s Chantry
- A hanging jewel above the valley –
This unique chapel at the corner of a former graveyard by St Nicolas’s was built thanks to piousness of Catherine of Bučovice, a Znojmo burgher, some time before 1521. It was constructed or “hung” on a mighty city wall, high above the Dyje River valley. Next to the chapel, there used to be a Late Romanesque carnarium (i.e. a graveyard chapel with a subterranean charnel-house). The chapel’s name is derived from the Gothic statue of St Wenceslas, the Patron Saint of all Czechs, fixed to the entrance front. The building has two storeys. The upper chapel of St Anne and St Catherine boasts about a beautiful Late Gothic vault, one of its kind in all Moravia. The lower chapel of St Martin seems to date back to before the 16th century. At present St Wenceslas Chantry houses art exhibitions and concerts.
