An outstanding cathedral that definitely should be in the top ten of Europe. It has such a variety of Gothic artwork; stained glass windows, paintings and fresco's, statuary, and gilded decoration. The most outstanding feature were so many ornate small altar areas in every nook...More

This small, but silver rich town was trying to compete with Prague and have the better cathedral. But their silver mine went dry and it took another 400 years to finish it.

As beautiful as any church in Prague itself, this cathedral really took our breath away. It's dedicated to Saint Barbara, who is the patron saint of miners - very appropriate in this former silver-mining town. Sited on a hillside overlooking the town of Kutna Hora...More

Definitely visit if you are in Kutna Hora. Hit it at golden hour and you’ll get amazing photos. We didn’t see the inside, but I’d imagine it’s gorgeous. Cobblestone makes it a little difficult for strollers.

It should be open 7 days a week, however, the hours do vary a little. I would try to call ahead to be sure.
