Historical monuments in the village Hnanice
St. Wofgang church
Calvary by field path leading to Nine mills.
Sealsfield stone – view into a deep canyon of river Dyje at Popice circuit. Favorite place of writer Karel Anton Postl (later used english pseudonym Charles Sealsfield).
The iron stairs – lookout above a abandoned meander of the river Dyje in the Nine mills locality. The name reminds a place where the Iron Curtain perpendicularly intersected the steep slope above river Dyje. For easier movement of the Border Guard troops were here built iron stairs, which were removed in in 1996.
Nine mills – the first written records of mills on this site dates back to 1497. Untill now are preserved dams, cellars and sometimes remains of mill-races and buildings.
Býčí skála – Bull Cliff – Vertical granite wall at the beginning of the retained water mass of the Znojmo Reservoir, below a lookout.
Kamenná moře – Boulder Fields – Stone Seas – Extensive areas of boulder fields of various sizes develop through mechanical weathering and the collapse of rocky massifs on steep slopes and walls and subsequent relocation to lower levels by gravitation. Stone seas can be found in several parts of Podyjí, especially on the right bank of the Dyje below the former Paper Mill (Papírna).
