  • If you want to find more about the life of the miners and you are not claustrophobic I highly recommend the tour of the silver mine. You don't need strong physical condition if you don't give up in th...  more »
  • Arrived 15 minutes before the museum was due to close, young man was rude and unhelpful, just wanted to lock up and go home. Started arguing with our guide, not impressed.  more »

  • I recommend the circuit with a tour of the mine tunnels. An interesting interpretation from a pleasant Companion. At the bottom is somewhat cramped, but not suitable for otesánky, šprajcnout there, and then I don't know how they got from there. It's a wide points only 40 cm. Our ancestors were probably somewhat smaller figures. The public part measures approx 300 metres and can be visited only as part of guided tours. Explorers were at first convinced that it is the Osel, who until the mid-16th century. the 20th century was one of the deepest and richest mines of the world, and that was just to these places written sources localized. Another survey, however, showed that this is a perfectly preserved medieval drainage Gallery, raženou from 14. until the beginning of 16th century. of the century. The system of the mine represents a unique demonstration of the old Kutná Hora mining tunnels with small profiles. The average width of corridors is 70 cm and a height of 70-300 cm

  • Circuit 2 is great. About 300 m long tour of the mine adit. The lowest ceiling, the narrowest place 120 cm 40 cm. Not for claustrophobes, čahouny and bulkier people. All a bit in a hurry, but fine. If you could choose, go in the smaller group of 15 people max, otherwise you will push enough ...

  • I recommend the route with the underground, nice and funny, interesting underground. Be careful, it's not the case for claustrophobes and on route 2 is not allowed to children under 6 years old and the dogs that someone was not great. From young people in the box office/reception, I would have expected more interest and willingness, completely absent, sour face.
