What to Expect
Meet your guide at your hotel in Prague. Walk together to the train station and take an hour-long journey to the city of Kutna Hora. Listen to your guide's stories about the city's history, while traveling through the beautiful landscapes of Central Bohemia.
The first stop, the Cathedral of Assumption of Our Lady and Saint John the Baptist, was once the largest Cistercian Abbey in Central Europe. Just a few steps from the cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, lies the Cemetery Church of All Saints with the Ossuary. Find out how and why the ossuary was created and see impressive art, made of human bones.
Take a bus ride to the city center and see the Italian Court, a former seat of the Central Mint of Prague and part-time royal residence. Enjoy lunch in a Czech restaurant before learning about the lives of silver miners, in a museum dedicated to their work. Dress up in a typical white coat and helmet, grab your flashlight and explore a real medieval silver mine.
The final stop is one of the most famous Gothic churches in Central Europe: the impressive Cathedral of St. Barbara. Marvel at the original medieval frescoes on its walls.
At the end of the tour, return to the train station and travel back to Prague.
