Great location

Did not go inside but the outside of the church is worth a look. The view of the valley and of the Cathedral of St. Barbara from the church is outstanding!

The Church of St.James is the highest building in Kutna Hora thanks to its bell tower. When we visited it was under renovation. It had a very nice and peaceful terrace overlooking the valley and the magnificent Cathedral of St.Barbara. Great photo opt.

My girlfriend and I saw this church from far so we decided to quickly stop by; there is not entrance fee but they accept donations, since i suppose in need of money for renovation. We gladly gave something. The church is not big but it has a few paintings worth checking out, and the lady at the entry gave us... More

Beautiful Gothic church on a hill. If you are looking for a pick-me-up after the church decorated in bones in Kutna Hora you might consider this slightly less creepy building to marvel at for less than 100Kc.

This church is undergoing renovation at the moment, so the whole of its tower end, including the tower, are covered in blue plastic and scaffolding. On the bright side, there is a display about the renovation inside the church and the huge,gleaming, golden "ball" that is normally situated at the top of the tower is now at floor level for...

It's a Gothic church, unfortunately, currently being repaired. It is near St.Barbora church (distance 0,5 km).

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.
