Jihlava is the capital city of the Vysočina Region. It is situated in the central part of the Czech Republic , on the banks of the Jihlava River. At present, the city has a population of 51 thousand.

History of Jihlava

The settlement named Jihlava was first mentioned in 1233 as the property of the Teutonic Knights. The village was developing due to silver mining. In the 13th century the town was provided with ramparts and a moat. During the Hussite Wars the town managed to resist the Hussite attacks and was never conquered. However, this happened in the course of the Thirty Year´s War when the Swedish troops plundered the town so systematically that when they finally left in 1647, the town had only 1 000 inhabitants. Jihlava was greatly developing in the 18th and 19th century, during the Industrial Revolution. Under the Hapsburg monarchy, Jihlava was a very important centre of textile industry. Historically, Jihlava was a town with a strong German majority. This was changed after the Second World War when the Germans were displaced.

Sights, monuments and attractions

The city of Jihlava is proud of its well-preserved historical centre. It 1982 it was declared the Jihlava urban reserve. It is distinctive with early Gothic architecture. The dominating feature at the square is the Baroque Jesuit Church of St. Ignatius of Loyola with the Jesuit College (now the city library) . As for the principal buildings, there is the Town Hall and the Vysočina Museum, specialised in the history of the city of Jihlava and the Region of Vysočina. It is worth seeing the Jihlava ramparts as one of the original gates is still preserved, and you should not miss the plague column, either. As regards the cultural life in Jihlava, there is the Horácké divadlo Theatre, the Culture House and Ján Šmok Gallery. In addition, you can visit the ZOO Jihlava or the Aquapark Water Paradise Jihlava .

Jihlava Underground Passageways

Jihlava is known for the Jihlava underground passageways , which is the second largest in the Czech Republic (after Znojmo) . The length of the passageways is approximately 25 kilometers and the passageway system was developed at several storeys. The passageways had been cut into the rock in the depth from 2 to 14 metres. First, they were led from townsman house cellars. Later, they were considerably extended. During the Second World War the underground area was closed and served as a bomb-proof shelter. At present, the underground system is a great tourist attraction. The interest is even enhanced by alleged paranormal phenomena in the part called Shining Passage whose luminance has not been fully explained yet.

Transport

The city has a very good public intrastate airport with soft surface in Henčov. Some 6 km from the city, there is the skeleton motorway between Prague and Brno . In addition, Jihlava is a very important railway node, too.
