Kutná Hora

Kutná Hora

Located 50 miles east of Prague, Kutná Hora was a wealthy medieval town due to its productive silver mines. A UNESCO Site, the Old Town boasts several Gothic churches, the most famous of which is the Church of St. Barbara, its tall spires marking the town’s skyline. The Kostnice Ossuary, begun in 1278, was built around a burial ground consecrated with earth brought from Golgotha and is now decorated with the bones of the people buried here.
