Kutna Hora Travel Guide: 365 reviews and 959 photos

Kutná Hora is a UNESCO-designated town and was one of the most important royal towns with silver mines from 13th to 16th century, rivaling even Prague in political importance.  Beside the lovely Gothic St. Barbara's cathedral, the silver mining museum and well-preserved town center, you should visit nearby Sedlec.  It is here that you will find the Chapel of All Saints with the famous ossuary ("kostnice"), whose entire interior is decorated with human bones dating from the 30 years' war.

Distance from Prague: approx. 45 miles (half-day to day trip)
