What To Expect
Kutna Hora, considered an ancient silver mining town, is one of the most historically significant town in the Czech Republic. After Prague, Kutna Hora was the second most important town in the medieval kingdom of Bohemia. The historical town center is part of the UNESCO World Heritage list.
Meet your guide at your Prague hotel and make your way to the train station on foot. While on the train, you will pass by the beautiful landscape of Central Bohemia. Hear about the history of Kutna Hora - from its foundation until the time of its greatest glory.
The first stop will be the former largest Cistercian abbey in Central Europe. Visit the stunning Cathedral of Assumption of Our Lady and Saint John the Baptist and explore the Cemetery Church of All Saints and the Sedlec Ossuary, popular for its human bone decorations.
Get to know why and how the Ossuary was created and see amazing art pieces made out of human bones. Take a short ride by bus to the city center and see the Italian Court, a former Royal mint of the Czech kingdom and residence of kings.
After a short lunch break in a good Czech restaurant, you will be given the chance to dive into the life of silver miners in the Czech Museum of Silver. Dress up in a typical uniform of medieval miners - a white coat with helmet and flashlight - and explore a real medieval silver mine.
The last stop is a symbol of pride of Kutna Hora's burghers, the gothic Cathedral of St. Barbara, with original medieval frescoes on its walls. After a journey through the city, your guide will take you back to the train station, and you'll enjoy a relaxing way back to Prague.
