The Complex of the Czechoslovak Fortification in Šatov

The fortification complex at the southern border of Czechoslovakia was created between 1935-1938. It consisted of objects of heavy fortification – infantry blocks, and light fortification – pillboxes. Some of these buildings were also used by the army after the war. The Technical Museum in Brno runs the MJ – S3 Zahrada Infantry Block. It organizes regular tours in the bunker with a guide. The bunker was reconstructed to its shape from the 1980s. It is equipped with weaponry and arms, including two fortification cannons 44/59, that were used there by the army in 1960-1999.  In the complex of the Czechoslovak fortification you can see the pillbox no. 37, antitank and anti-personnel weapons or even a fortification watchtower and a replica of so-called signal walls protecting the frontier area.

Šatov is located in the south of Moravia close to the borders with Austria, south of Znojmo.
