SVOBODA HOUSES

SVOBODA HOUSES

- A bit of pre-modern metropolis in Znojmo –
With their four storeys and massiveness, Svoboda Houses on Republic Square (nám. Republiky) are the biggest historic building in Znojmo's city. If we look at it from the City Park, this monumental Neo-Baroque block of flats may remind us of a grand chateau or a huge palace. Designed by architect Franz Svoboda, it was built shortly before World War One, in 1907-1908. At that time it was no doubt the most ambitious construction project in the whole region; it is also a proof of a timeless design to enlarge Znojmo in a metropolis-like manner along the main road leading to Vienna, the capital city. However, the World War, the fall of the Empire and the constitution of Czechoslovakia did not let this vision of a “Vienna Suburb” come true.
