Thanks, Znojmo is one of Czech top cities in terms of historical value for sure, however I think it's bit behindhand compared to another cities in purchasing power of inhabitants. I know it is in agricultural region, which is not very progressive branch nowadays. Znojmia, our famous company producing cucumbers went bankrupt few years ago too.
I see something on the right but don't know if it's train.

The region can get more from Austrian border relations, unfortunately it still has not meant much for region economical development.
To complete the town presentation:

Znojmo panorama (not my take of the picture):
