Religious Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • To start up the slopes to the Cathedral of Santa Barbara you naonimagina you will realmebte lose the breath only when entering the Church. Beautiful!!!! If you're in Prague don't let go! More interesting than the famous Ossuario of Sedlec.

  • St. Martin's Cathedral. Barbara is simply magnificent, beautiful and impressive. One of the most beautiful in the whole Czech Republic. Definitely worth a visit. Whether you get a glimpse of her outside, or even inside you, it's worth it. Watch out but the visit on Saturday, are a wedding here, and that's all the morning Cathedral inaccessible.

  • Bully or not offend. Current temple with a paid entry. From the horční part of the katedráli is a nice view. It is worth a visit, but I would not come back again

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.
