Visit to St. Barbara’s Cathedral was part of our day trip to Kutna Hora. I do not remember the history but it was spectacular building. On the wall there are paintings depicting the times of mining era. The glass decorations on the window are also magnificent.

By bad luck or timing (only for us) the Church was undergoing Major renovations and was covered in scaffolding & dust matting but hopefully will exit the cocoon as a new building for future viewers ! Still dominates the whole Town and is an impressive sight !

We reached this church by 16:00 and it was closed!!! So cannot comment on the interior but defntly liked the architecture of the church. Impressively looms against the blue Kutna Hora'n sky and worth a few mins to even check out the exterior architecture. There is a narrow passage from where you get beautiful views of the Kutna Hora city and the Ursuline convent n St.Barbara's spires.

Incidentally, we headed toward this church after the Silver Museum. On exiting the Museum, by taking a right on the first winding lane, you walk into one of the most beautiful old town lanes - narrow, cobbled, curved, colorful leaves drooping by, tiny wooden windows on stone buildings ...albeit short, this lane is a delight to walk in if u like some rustic scenes; straight out of 13th century and looks like technology hasn't reached here. This route would lead you to the back entrance of the church. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

If St Barbara's church is the church of the college and where most tourists head for, then St James is the parish church of the town and one that attracts small numbers of visitors. From the terace which leads to St Barbara the church appears very prominently looking back to the town, with a very tall tower, a second tower was also planned has not really risen above the roofline. Built c1350-1429 it is a gothic hall church with nave and aisles and an apsidal chancel. There have been later embellishments including the high altar which dates from 1677. Opposite the entrance (on the south side) is a paved viewing area for the Jesuit College and St Barbara's church. There is a small fee for admission and photography (without flash) is permitted.
