About 70 km east-south-east of Prague.
An old and nice medieval town with cobblestones and small streets. At the end of the 13th century, rich deposits of silver were discovered in the town and in the years up to the 16th century a lot of silver was extracted. The area was then regarded as one of the richest in Central Europe.
The tour takes approx. 8 hours and there are four must-sees in and around this town.
1. St. Barbara's Church, with its three special spires. It looks like a circus tent at a distance. The church is decorated with frescoes with mining motives.
2. Vlasský dvur (Italian Court). Previously, silver coins were made here. Today it exhibits coins and seals.
3. Hradek, originally a fort, but now a mining museum with a closed silver mine. The tour in the mine takes about 45 minutes. Interesting visit, but not suited for people with claustrophobia, as the galleries are very narrow in some places. The tour must be booked in advance.
4. Bonechapel in Sedlec, located about 5 km outside of Kutna Hora, is known for it’s special embellishment madeby approx. 40.000 peoples bones and skulls. It is definitely a different experience.
Please note that the museum is closed from November until March.
The stated price is for English-speaking guide.
