About Slavonice

Slavonice used to be on main trading route from Bohemia to Austria. Most of the buildings in the historic centre are from this era. Then, merchants started to use different routes and Slavonice "fell by the wayside". Thanks in part to that, the historic centre is well-preserved. Before the Second World War the majority of the inhabitants of the town was ethnically German and mostly Lutheran.
