St. Catherine’s Rotunda

Image

St. Catherine’s Rotunda is situated between Znojmo’s Castle and the old Hostan Brewery. This Romanesque circular church was probably built by Conrad I of Brno in the 1080s.

             

The interior is decorated with the some of oldest frescoes in the Czech  Republic dating back to the late 11th Century. They arguably prove that the rulers of Znojmo had a much more important role as politicians than Prague likes to admit.
