The construction of fortification started during the foundantion of the town of Znojme before 1226. The internal moat and internal fortification belt with defensive towers come from this time. In the course of the following centuries the fortification was enlarged by other walls. The town of Znojmo was for its position at the Moravian-austrian border the best fortified town between Vienna and Prague. However, in the 17. ant 18. centuries the style of warfare changed and the Medieval fortification were insufficient in the warfare progress.

After the Napoleonic wars the town authorities started to demolish the city gates and the fortification was sold to the private property. In the part of the external belt of fortification around the town the alleys were founded (today City Park). Nevertheless, the bigger part of fortification has been preserved and the chosen sections of fortification and defensive towers can be visited within the sightseeing tour with a guide. Of all the towers there is a fabulous view of the town and its surroundings.
