Day Trip from Prague: Kutna Hora

The City of Kutna Hora
The medieval Bohemian city of Kutna Hora is deserving of its place on the UNESCO World Heritage list.

Originally a silver mining town, Kutna Hora is now known for two of its religious sites: the Kostnice Ossuary and the Church of Saint Barbara.

Kostnice Ossuary in Kutna Hora

Built in 1511, the Kostnice Ossuary was erected for the purpose of housing human bones. The building today contains the bones of about 40,000 people.

The ossuary boasts macabre sights such as a chandelier made from every bone in the human body.

Church of Saint Barbara in Kutna Hora

The massive Church of Saint Barbara was constructed in the 14th century by Peter Parler, the designer of Prague’s St. Vitus Cathedral. Known for its beautiful spires and flying buttresses, the church is open to the public for visits and should not be missed on a day trip to Kutna Hora.
