THE DISTRICT COURT OF JUSTICE

THE DISTRICT COURT OF JUSTICE

- Antique monumentality on the edge of medieval town -
From 1855 to 1949 Znojmo was the seat of a Regional Court of Justice (there were altogether six in Moravia). Originally it was located in the Old Town-Hall building but more and more it was becoming obvious that the place did not suffice. Therefore, the government decided to finance the construction of a new justice palace. The three architects Johann Unger, Klement Prinosil and Franz Svoboda were commissioned to design it on a large lot on Republic Square, alongside with the former outer city moat. Due to the outbreak of World War One the construction took six long years (1913-1919). The result was however astounding - a spacious monumental quadratic Neo-Classicist palace with a commanding high clock tower and, further down the slope, a prison annexe. In 1949 the court administration in Czechoslovakia was reorganized and the Znojmo court became only a District Court. However, in common speech today, the building is still called “Krajzák“ (derived from German “Kreisgericht”).
