"Santa Barbara Church" Kutna Hora Travelogue by bakalapoe
Kutna Hora Travel Guide: 365 reviews and 961 photos
In the late 1300 St. Barbara was founded by the rich mine owners of Kutna Hora in an attempt to further their religious independence from the Cistercian monastery at Sedlec and compete with the grandeur of Prague’s St. Vitus Cathedral. St. Barbara is the patron saint of miners. You can't miss the Church of Saint Jacob in Kutna Hora. It was built on a higher place and its dominance is even magnified by its 85 meters high tower. Originally it had to have two towers, but this idea was abandoned because of unsuitable terrain.
