“Kutna Hora a day trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

My daughter and I took a bus to and a train from. Both easy to connect with. St. Barbara church is worth walking to and the view is outstanding! The town itself is quaint but we did find a pizza place. Then we walked to the Bone Church (no kidding) and its really different...like a little unnerving for me but not my daughter. We did a lot of walking so if you are not able of doing that, there are shuttles . Buy the ticket for all 3 things to see..

“St. Georges mine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Just amazing! The tunnel has been driven by hand of medieval miners in gneiss of Kutna Hora crystalline complex. In the superincumbent stratum there is a massive bed of mesozoic sedimentary rocks. It contains limestone which becomes soluble in the leaking water and consequently it deposits on the roof and walls like in karst caves. Beautiful place!

“Very interesting, must see for people who like history.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

We actually stumbled upon this place and weren't planning on coming here. Luckily there was an English tour running 15 minutes from when we arrived. The guide was amusing and very informative on the production of silver and how the mine originally worked. It was interesting to get to see the old silver mine and imagine the conditions the workers had to deal with.

“Meh”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile

We opted for the tour without the mine portion. Our very sweet guide took us through the museum section. Her English was very limited (not judging because my Czech is non-existent) just noting that the English tour is a bit difficult to understand. You have to reserve a time to tour this, so stop off on your way to St. Barbara's and reserve your tour!

“Lovely history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

If your interest includes local history, this is for you. Somewhat difficult to find, but it is right in the center of town. Lovely history and lovingly preserved artifacts.
