    A lot of bones, an impression that all skulls on watching you, in general it seems to me that it would be better if all of them were buried properly.

    Extraordinarily small and rather boring. It takes over 2 hours to get here from Prague on public transport and you will spend maximum 30 minutes inside. There are pyramids of skulls, a large chandelier of bones and a coat of arms made from bones too. For those who have some history with anatomy (or are not particularly superstitious), it is not worth your journey, especially since there is no information about the site or its history provided.

    A fascinating place, you can't help but wonder why they choose to decorate with bones but it is strangely beautiful. 15 minutes should get you around the whole church. Well worth the journey from Prague

    Smaller than I expected, but breathtaking and definitely worth a visit. It's astounding to see so many bones, especially if you've ever taken an A&P course!

    Quite fascinating to see and learn how this church came about. They even have a short video explaining how they are renovating the place with the help of archeological students. Must see !

    Visited during our European motorcycle tour, plenty of parking but most people visit on tour busses, the two local cafés are nice. It was very crowded when we arrived, but take your time and they soon move on, women with exposed shoulders are asked to use a shawl to cover shoulders, they have some available. Well worth the price of entry.

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.
