It is possibly the most popular and probably the most
rewarding destination for a daytrip from Prague. It’s one of the 12 places in the Czech Republic on UNESCO’s world heritage list, but it is most famous for its remarkable ‘’bone church” a cemetery chapel decorated with the bones of up to 40,000 people.

St. Barbaraâ€™s is the most spectacular gothic cathedral in the Czech Republic, a land noted for its Gothic cathedrals. Itâ€™s difficult to appreciate the splendour of the cathedral from close up, and impossible to capture it in a photograph. The intricacy of the flying buttresses, the unique tent-like sailing spires, and the marvellous cliff-top setting combine to make a visit to the cathedral an awe-inspiring experience.
Hradek (small castle) is the name of the building that houses the main branch of the Czech M useum of Silver. It was built into Kutná Hora’s fortifications in the 1300’s as a guard tower, but was later reconstructed for use as an aristocratic residence
The I talian Court (VlaĹĄskĂ˝ DvĹŻr) was originally built as a fortified castle to watch over the important trade route connecting the capitals of Bohemia and Moravia: Prague and Olomouc. When a rich deposit of silver was discovered in Kutna Hora in the 13th century century, its fortifications provided the safest storage place and it was pressed into service as a mint.
