Znojmo - Czech Republic

.
.

Some pictures from my recent visit to the town of Znojmo, Czech Republic in October 2009. My friend in Vienna told me that Znojmo is a favourite shopping destination for the people from Vienne & surrounding areas because most shops, especially at Freeport factory outlet close late at 10.00pm daily & open on weekends.

********************************

Znojmo (Czech pronunciation: [ˈznojmo]; German: Znaim) is a city in the South Moravian Region of the Czech Republic, near the border with Lower Austria.

The city is situated on a rock outcropping on the steep left bank of the Dyje River, and retains a number of examples of its medieval architecture. The Gothic Church of St. Nicholas and the Late Gothic Town Hall tower are the most recognizable landmarks. St Nicolas` Church was built in 1348 by Emperor Charles IV, and the town hall, with its 75 m (250 ft) tower, dates from around 1446. Overlooking the Dyje River valley, on the edge of the medieval city, there is Znojmo Castle, dating back to 11th century, founded by Přemyslid dukes.

….Bata Shoes Company, founded by Tomas Bat’a is the pride of Czech Republic for its success story expanding worldwide & initiating excellent business principles. In most of the Asian countries, Bata has a very strong presence in manufacturing & distributing shoes for the masses at affordable prices.

As a Malaysian, I have a strong personal connection with Bata brand, because when I was a kid, I grew up with Bata products - went to school with Bata shoes, playing sports with Bata sneakers, hanged out at the cities with Bata casual shoes & at home I have Bata sandals & flips-flops……

I'd be interested to know if the Bata Store was built in the 1930's. A very progressive company back then. Great photos.

This might clear the air, or perhaps any of our Czech friends here can provide additional infos..?
