I found the church more interesting to look at from a observation point uphill. You can always see the top of the church while walking around the old town. Though it's free to get in, I don't think it's a must-see place!

Supposedly, the English name is St. James and the Czech name is St, Jacob (wonder why). We sure confused a few locals (who rambled away very well in Czech but could help us with very lil English) and got highly confused in the process too. We reached this church by 16:00 and it was closed!!! So cannot comment on the... More

The wall sections below the window in the polygonal choir were covered with mural paintings in the late 15th century, featuring several angels. No charge to get in, you can make a voluntary contribution.

The listing for Kutna Hora lists this church twice, once with its English name (St James) in Czech sv Jacob. I have written a full review there but in September 2011 this church was open to visitors for a small charge.

This church which is one of the landmarks of Kutna Hora is unfortunately closed to visitors and therefore, you can only enjoy it from outside. Dating back to 14th century, the church is a combination of late Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque styles as a result of additions throughout the centuries. The day we were there, sun had just appeared after... More
