Daytrip to Kutna Hora AND Konopiste Castle

Good Day dear sirs and madams!

My family is planning a day trip from Prague. Originally we wanted to take a guided tour, but we are thinking of reconsidering since the tour comes out to be quite pricey aroudn 310 euros not including the entrance fees. Do you think it is a reasonable price for a tour for 5 people?

In your experience do you think it is possible to make a day trip to BOTH Kutna Hora and KOnopiste Castle on the same day on our own?

I appreciate your help on this!

THank you!

Lana

It's not really possible to do both in one day using public transportation, as you have to go back to Prague to get from one to another, unless you wanted to take some tortureously slow buses and trains that connect in Cercany and Sazava on the way.

However, if you rented a car you could do both in one day. The total driving time would be around 3 hours.

Thank you very much for a response! I think we will actually do a daytrip to Kutna Hora only. Do you think it is better to take a guided tour, or going on your own will provide you with a good informational experience also?

I'm not a good person to ask about guide tours, as the answer will always be "never in a million years". For me, nothing beats a good guide book, pre-trip research and the freedom to see what I want when I want and to explore and discover things myself.

It is not difficult to go to Kutna Hora on your own. Fast train goes from Prague to Kutna Hora every 1 or 2 hrs and gets there in 1 hour. Return ticket costs approximately 8 EUR per person. Kutna Hora is really worth to visit. It is a romonatic medieval town with ancient churches and cabled sidestreets. It is easy to spend here all day. More information find here:

seems a bit pricy for the Kutna Hora trip 40euros per peson should be nearer the mark.

you can do it on your own for a great deal less.

Konopiste can also be done on your own but its a bit of a walk from the train station in Benesov to the Castle

the new kiddie train makes it easy to get from the Benesov train station to Konopiste
