CAROLINE’S GARDEN AND PARADISE GARDEN

CAROLINE’S GARDEN AND PARADISE GARDEN

- Subtropical flora on a steep slope just below the city -
In the 1820s, the steep slope dipping from the city walls below St Nicholas’s Church towards the Dyje River enthralled Znojmo citizens who, inspired by the spirit of Viennese Biedermayer, desired to have another public garden within a stone’s throw from the city centre. The new garden began to be built in 1824 when the old city wall was broken through and a new Classicist gate was erected. Soon a wide serpentine path was built down the slope, which made the way from the town to the swimming pool by the river much shorter. Trees and bushes were planted along the new path which ended down by the river, near the Old Stone Mill (now Old Timer Car Museum). This new sloping garden as well as the new gate were named after an Austrian Empress, Caroline Augusta of Bavaria (1792-1872) who paid visit to Znojmo in 1833, together with her husband Emperor Francis I. In the course of the 19th century Caroline’s Garden was supplemented with a few wooden and brick pavilions and lookout rondels with benches. In 1875 the garden was extended to the south. In the place of old vineyards, a new, more intimate garden was built. It was called the Paradise Garden.
