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.

  • Beautiful temple in Gothic style, it is best to visit with a guide, because opening up interesting facts about pregnancy fashion in the 15 century, about the difficult life of the miners, about poproshajkah, and more. BUT there are very cold, so dress warmly.
