I was unaware of this, though my wife wasn’t (duh), but there is still an existing section of old Soviet border fence just to the west of Znojmo that has been left up for historical/educational reasons.

In the past I have driven along the Czech-Austrian border on the the way to Slavonice (also on the Prague-Vienna greenways path I believe) and seen numerous examples of old soviet bunkers but this was something different, slightly more humbling.

Definitely worth the visit.
