The second cathedral in Kutna Hora plays second fiddle to the St. Barbara's, but is well worth a visit. More restrained in its decorations, there is a simple elegance to the cathedral, which is much lighter and has a more open feel. One highlight is certainly the unsupported spiral staircase.

While visiting Prague, we drove to Kutna Hora to visit the famous Bone Church. We have visited a few other bone churches, but this one had an odd twist with many features designed with human bones. Walking around the church there were active human excavations underway. It was worth the visit for us, but a little pricey.

What a place, can get really busy with bus tours, we decided to go ourselves so we had more time in each place. Return train ticket from Prague was 357 Kc for 2, purchased the 3 attraction ticket for the Ossuary, Cathedral of Our Lady & Church of St. Barbara, 185 Kc each. First stop is the Ossuary, which is...

Dropped by this church on our way to the Sedlec Ossuary which is just a few meters from here. My advice is to buy combine ticket for Ossuary&Cathedral, it is cheaper. The cathedral is huge and very impressive , more from outside than inside, but stil inside you can see some interesting paintings and nice altar.

Another UNESCO sight which I would recommend people to see when visiting the Czech Republic. The cathedral is in Kutna Hora 100km east of Prague. We were staying at the centre of Kutna Hora so it was a good 20-25 minutes walk. It has a very interesting history. We went up to the attic and you end up in the... More

The Assumption Cathedral is on the main road, just at the corner where turning left for the famous Ossuary. First, you'll notice its grandeur, which doesn't seem to belong to a small town like Kutna Hora, specially to Sedlec as a part of it where it is. The facade is huge, pure Gothic but pretty simple, not that decorative like... More

We came from Prague to see the ossuary, but learned we could buy a ticket that allowed us to visit two additional sites, this one and the Church of St Barbara. Cost was 185 Kc, or about $7.65 American. We are glad we got to see all three sites. This was a huge Gothic-Baroque style cathedral that was impressive both... More
