Head to the Bohemian countryside on a private tour that takes you to the Sedlec Cathedral, the 12th-century Church of St. Jacob, and Bohemia's finest Empire chateau. Stop for typical Czech cuisine at lunch, and end with a visit to historic Kutná Hora.
What to Expect
Admire the scenic countryside of Bohemia on a 70-minute drive from Prague to Sedlec as you embark on this full-day private tour.
Visit the Sedlec Monastery, dating from the 13th and 14th centuries, and one of the most important religious institutions in Bohemia. The cathedral was rebuilt during the 17th and 18th century in a Czech-Baroque style. Marvel at the chapel that is decorated entirely with human bones.
The next stop is the Church of St. Jacob, located in the village of Jakub. This important structure dates from the 12th century, and has been classified a national cultural monument.
Continue on to the magnificent Kačina Chateau, built by Jan Rudolf Chotek between 1806 and 1824. The Chateau is among the most important buildings of the Empire architectural style in Bohemia.
Take a break for lunch at the Dačický restaurant and enjoy fine Czech and international cuisine.
On the drive back to Prague, you’ll stop to visit the city of Kutná Hora, listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. As you’ll see, this city’s history was significantly influenced by silver mining.
