“Amazing!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

I have nothing new to write. Other reviews already cover them. I liked the style of this building. The walk towards the entrance gate is so amazing. I just want to suggest that for travel planning it is a much better idea to first go to the city-center of Kutna Hora to visit this and nearby sites, and then cover Ossuary in the evening as the main train station is much nearer to it. I didn't follow this plan and missed out on entering the Cathedral. Plan at least an entire day in Kutna Hora.

“Beautiful-Fantastic Structure!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

We visited the Cathedral in the snow which was a remarkable experience and with the weather, it looked like a wonderful black and white postcard! It's a beautiful building, overlooking the countryside! The looming ceilings inside are impressive as are the beautiful stained glass windows. Highly recommended if you are in Kutna Hora!

“Second most beautiful cathedral I have ever seen.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Kutna Hora is a beautiful town on its own with a lot to see, but this cathedral is probably the center piece. Big, architecture amazing, well located. Lovely view, which you can enjoy while sipping a glass of wine near by. Been several times and always amazed. Totally recommend.

“Beautiful Cathedral in a very peaceful small town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

Coming into Kutna Hora on the train you wouldn't believe a cathedral like this would be there. Just up on a hill it has a beautiful view of the surroundings. The cathedral itself is very ornate, quite different from others. Definitely worth taking a trip here from Prague to see this place.

“Beautiful and Serene”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

St. Barbara's is a quiet place to reflect o the hard lives that the miners had in this town. The church was built with the silver mined here. There are many tributes inside the church as well as places where the miners and their families asked for blessings and safe passage every day. It is a beautiful church.
