After visiting St. Vitus cathedral in Prague, this place didn't impress me as much, but it still has a lot to offer. Biggest points of interest: baroque paintings and chapels in the back and naves of the church, ornate relic boxes of two saints displaying...More

The church interior has the early Gothic colonnades and vaults going for it. The collection of art and religious artifacts (with the fully-size relics of 2 early Roman saints on display!) was rather somber and somewhat awkward. The exterior is also a pretty sober example...More

This was a great first stop to learn about the monks and history of the church and silver mines before visiting the bone church and miner’s church. Pay for the video then tour the church. Be sure to go to the rooftop up the spiral...More

Once you had reached and exited Kutna Hora main train station there's a local bus F01 which would bring you to the vicinity of the church. Price is 12Kc per trip regardless of distance. The distance from train station is relatively short about 1.2km, once...More
