Cathedral of St. Barbara, Kutna Hora

4.7
Famous for its eye-catching spires and well-preserved medieval frescoes, Cathedral of St. Barbara counts among the finest Gothic structures in all of Europe, and is inscribed on the World Heritage List. Construction started in 1380 and continued for nearly three centuries, until the silver in the local mine began to run out in the 1550s. Finally completed in the 19th century, the building features ribbed vaulting and several side chapels, noted for their wall murals depicting everyday scenes from the life of a thriving medieval mining town. Take a good look at the frescoes, but don't forget to visit the cathedral's east terrace, offering panoramic views of the city.

Where to stay in Kutna Hora

A World Heritage Site and one of Czech Republic's most picturesque towns, Kutna Hora doesn't offer a huge number of places to stay, but you can still find charming hotels and guesthouses. Because it's a relatively small town, you don't have to worry too much about location; nearly everything is within walking distance. However, for those who prefer to stay outside town, consider a countryside guesthouse or campground.
