Znojmo, a forgotten jewel of the Czech Republic

I went to Znojmo despite a guidebook warning about it mainly being a stopover for Austrian businessmen.  That'll teach you to listen to guidebooks.

Znojmo, Czech Republic-a striking skyline
Looks like Italy, but it's Znojmo, Czech Republic
 I spent a lot of time on my pension's balcony, above, eating leisurely breakfasts, writing, and enjoying the fall sun before it turned cold.

More views from my pension, Znojmo

The place I stayed--both visits to Znojmo--was the charming and central Cyklo Penzion U Mikulase.  It provides basic budget accommodations with thin walls and great views.

Great hiking around Znojmo

The old town center is full of pretty squares, churches, and other architectural pleasures.  Quiet and walkable, and almost eerie in its night-time stillness, Znojmo remains one of my favorites small cities.
