Long Description:

The Nežárecká Gate is an element of the Jindrichuv Hradec fortification. Only this gate, which was also called Linz Gate, has been preserved from the original three town gates. The original medieval gate with two Gothic floors was expanded during the construction of the adjoining seminary with another floor in the late-Renaissance style with embrasures and gable roof.

At the beginning of the 19th century, a triangular gable was added and a clock was placed there. In 1879, a tower clocks made by a town's horologist Martin Rezek, were installed in the gate. On the western flank is the gate decorated with a stone relief of the town's coat of arms in a Renaissance cartouche. The painted coat of arms of Jan Jirí Jáchym Slavata and his wife, Marie Markéta of Rappach, were installed on the inner side of the gate at the end of the 17th century.
