MARIÁNSKÉ NÁMĚSTÍ (VIRGIN MARY SQUARE)

MARIÁNSKÉ NÁMĚSTÍ (VIRGIN MARY SQUARE)

- A little bit of Paris in Znojmo –
Up to the last third of the 19th century, Znojmo had been confined within its medieval city walls, the only exceptions being the suburbs in front of the city gates. In 1869 – 1871 Znojmo was connected to the railway network and at the same time the city council was readying a timeless urbanistic plan on whose basis Znojmo was to spread towards the railway station and towards the north and east. In 1876-1880, by the classicist Virgin Mary Chapel in the fields (demolished by the Communists in 1952), a new square was erected (originally called „Polygonplatz“) from which seven avenues lead like rays. The influence of Place de l´Étoile in Paris or Praterstern in Vienna is plain to see. Since then, the square has always functioned as the key traffic junction of the new part of Znojmo.
