Znojmo undergroud

Slepičí trh 275/2
Znojmo, 669 02

The extensive maze of underground passages and halls, stretching under the whole area of the medieval town, is the result of interconnecting the basements of individual burgher houses in the course of the 14th to 15th centuries. Its purpose was to protect the town inhabitants against hardships due to enemy siege and pillage by foreign armies. The space was ventilated, so that it was possible to make fire in it. Should the enemy penetrate into the labyrinth, he would face the danger of slipping and falling through trap doors. The total length of the passages is 26.5 km, at some points there are up to 4 levels one over another at a maximum depth of 15 m underground.
