The most interesting tourist sites

The Jihlava Catacombs are an important historical monument of the city, the second largest underground labyrinth in our country. There are 3 floors, and the beginnings date back to the 14th century. The total length is 25 km and covers an area of 50,000 m2. One of the best known places is the so-called “illuminating corridor”, where the walls are covered with a whitish coating, which, after previous lighting, gives out a greenish fluorescence.

The Gate of the Holy Mother was founded at the time of the construction of the city and the fortification system at the beginning of the 2nd half of the 13th century. It is a typical symbol of the city and the only gate which was preserved from the five medieval town gates.

The main square of Jihlava is one of the largest squares in the Czech Republic and according to written sources, the 3rd largest in the former Czechoslovakia. There are 12 streets leading into the square. Most of the originally Gothic houses were rebuilt in the Renaissance and Baroque styles in the following centuries, and eventually most of them got a Classicist façade. The square is dominated by the Jesuit Church of St. Ignatius of Loyola. Not far from the square there is a church of St. Jacob the Greater of 1257 and a Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary in the west along with the Street and Gate of the Holy Mother. Near the church of St. Ignatius of Loyola there is a very distinct building of the Town Hall.

Medieval walls were built around the city in the 13th century. There were five gates which were equipped with complex forefronts and drawbridges. Only one of the five gates was preserved – the Gate of the Holy Mother in the Holy Mother Street. The preserved area of the fortification walls was reconstructed to its Baroque style from the 17th century, the zwinger was landscaped into a park and is open to the public. The last remnants of the moat can be seen in Vezni (Tower) Street.
