Střelniční (Firing) Tower

Dolní park
Znojmo, 669 00

The late-Gothic prismatic tower is situated at the south-east corner of the main town wall. Entrance from the gallery of the now partly demolished wall is on the 1st level, embrasures facing the fortification outworks are on the 2nd and 3rd levels. The date 1513, engraved above the threshold of the 3rd-level embrasure, relates to the construction of the whole tower. The purpose of the original small joists at the lower part of the so-called keyhole embrasures was to cushion the recoil of the hand firearm hooked here (called arquebus). In 2013 the tower underwent complete reconstruction, during which a wooden approach stairway was fitted into the body of the tower and attached to its outer casing.
