Private trip from Prague to Kutna Hora & Bone Church
For those seeking an alternative to larger cities and to experience an authentic Czech town, Kutna Hora with Bone Church is a must. This charming medieval town was once home to the world’s largest silver mine.
A visit reminds one of earlier times. Life here is quiet, relaxed and less tourist-influenced. You will be charmed by this town has to offer.
Viewed from a distance upon arrival, you will be awed by St. Barbara’s Cathedral. This Czech treasure of medieval Gothic architecture dating to 1388 with impressive exterior and masterpiece interior was consecrated to a patron saint of miners.
Visit the Museum of Silver located in 15th century Hradek Castle and perhaps take a silver mine tour, exploring an over 250-meter length medieval mine while cloaked in miner’s hat and coat.
At conclusion of the 13th century, the mine provided about one third of European silver production. Because of its wealth, Kutná Hora became the second most important city in Bohemia, after Prague.
The Bone Church (Ossuary) in Kutna Hora is a very eerie-unique, highlight experience amazed by all. Located in a cemetery, the church is fully decorated with human bones and skulls of more than 40 thousand people who died during 14th century plague epidemics and 15th century religious wars. Human bone-filled walls, vaults with skulls with crossbones hanging on display and centrally hung bony chandelier are the dominant features of this one of a kind place.
While strolling Kutna Hora’s cobblestone streets, observe local patrons shopping at the main
square, or sitting at an open restaurant enjoying a cup of coffee. Also, experience authentic Czech food at a medieval tavern, or have a beer with locals.
Kutna Hora is also home of the largest tobacco processor in the country, Philip Morris.
A half-day tour to Kutna Hora and Bone Church is memorable and very much worth the time.
„A Day in Kutna Hora“
My husband and I had a terrific day in Kutna Hora thanks to our guide Jan, whom Kamil and Pavlina arranged for us. Jan was really wonderful---very courteous and helpful, patient in answering all our questions, took us everywhere we wanted to go, and had really interesting things to say about everything. He was informative and friendly without being at all intrusive. We visited three fascinating sights---a silver mine, an ossuary, and the gorgeous gothic cathedral of Santa Barbara---and enjoyed a delicious lunch in a local tavern. Jan even gave us time to do a little shopping and relax over an afternoon coffee. I highly recommend him to anyone visiting Prague or its environs.
On the basis of our experience with Jan, I would recommend your guide service to anyone visiting Prague.
