UGART PALACE

UGART PALACE

- Where the Emperor of France lingered for a while -
The palace at Horní nám. (Upper Square) No 9 was originally built as a single-storeyed Renaissance burgher house in the second half of the 16th century, of which a spacious cross-vaulted entrance hall - “maashaus“ - still bears many traces. In the 17th century it belonged to the family of Paul Wallin and in 1680 it was sold to Count Jean Louis de Souches, the famous general who saved Brno from the Swedish army in the Thirty Years’ War and the owner of Jevišovice Chateau. When the Counts de Souches died out in 1736, their estates passed to the possession of the Counts von Ugart, who had the palace in Znojmo rebuilt in the Baroque style. The pompous entrance portal is particularly worth mentioning. On November 17th 1805 Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte himself arrived in Znojmo and took lodging in Ugart Palace for two nights. The French army was continuously marching from the Danube to Moravia then, pursuing the retreating Russians and Austrians. The outcome was the glorious Battle of Austerlitz. Today Ugart Palace offers a Napoleonic-style restaurant.
