Explore the architecturally rich town of Kutna Hora, a UNESCO World Heritage Site located outside of Prague. Built in the Middle Ages, it was once the symbol of the force and wealth of the Czech kings. Later, explore the town's Cathedral of St. Barbara.
What to Expect
Head east from Prague to the UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage site of Kutna Hora. Built in the Middle Ages in the midst of an extensive silver ore field, it quickly became Bohemia’s second-most significant town. Its ample mineral assets became the backbone of the Czech economy, enriching the kingdom massively.
Next, you’ll tour the town’s Cathedral of St. Barbara, considered one the best examples of late Gothic architecture in Bohemia. St. Barbara was patroness of the miners, and miners would come to the cathedral to receive her blessings. Then, tour the Old Mint, where the region’s vast mineral wealth was transformed into usable currency, such as the Prague Gros and later, the Austrian Tolar, as well as the Sedlec Ossuary – the Bone Chapel.
