The town of Kutná Hora was founded in medieval times in a rich areah in silver ore. In the 14th century it was the second most important town after Prague in the Czech Kingdom and it continued to thrive until the 16th century. From this golden age, or rather silver age, comes the most beautiful architectural gems of the town of Kutná Hora.
You will visit the unique, majestic St. Barbara Cathedral, Barbara being the patron saint of miners. This Cathedral is considered to be a perfect example of late Gothic architecture in Bohemia. Traces of the Middle-Ages are visible on every step you will encounter, for example when visiting the Italian Courtyard, the former royal mine or the residence of the king during his visits to Kutná Hora.
Our last stop will be nearby at the chapel of the Cemetery Church of All Saints, which is also known as the Sedlec Ossuary (Kostnice, bone churches). The decoration of this chapel is almost entirely made of human bones and skulls and reminds us of the transitory nature of human life…
