Znojmo skyline from the southwest

• 60. Znojmo skyline from the southwest
- The classic view which bewitched many a painter -
Perhaps the best-known Znojmo lookout is located on the top plateau of Cow Mountain. To reach it, we can walk from St Nicholas’ Church, through Caroline’s Gate and down Caroline’s Garden, over the bridge, and up the long slope Cow Mountain. It takes us not more than half an hour. We shall be rewarded by a fabulous view of all the city landmarks at the 180° angle: from St Hippolytus Mount over Znojmo Castle, St Michael’s Church, St Wenceslas Chantry, St Nicholas’ Church, the Town-Hall Tower, the two towers of the Dominican Church, the Wolf Tower, the Court of Justice, the railway bridge up to the Louka Abbey. This view has bewitched many a painter who tried to depict the city’s unique skyline. Among them, there was for example Wenceslas Hollar (1607-1677), a renowned Czech etcher, later based in England.
