This very nice smaller church in beautiful Kutna Hora is definitely worth seeing especially because of the very large ornate Gothic altar. It is worth a donation.

... but not the same opulence we had in St Barbara. Nevertheless its nice to see that the churches have outlived Socialism and Kommunsim by a long way....

We were fortunate to walk past on the way to the center of the town from our hotel and found the church opened. No entry fee, donations accepted. Quite a few tourists visiting, some resting their tired bodies in the pews. Beautiful decor.

Kutna Hora. Many artistic masterpieces adorn the interior, dating as early as 1734 and earlier. The spire is an area landmark. Buy the multi-church ticket.

This is the tallest church in Kutna Hora and we had hoped to climb its square tower but unfortunately the church was closed when we visited and exterior has some scaffolding covering the frontage

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...More
