“A must-see”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

St. Barbara is a very unusual church, sitting at the top of a hill with a nest of flying buttresses protruding from her roof. It was snowing when I arrived, and it looked magical. The inside was just as impressive (although unsurprisingly even colder than outside - I was glad to have my thick layers!). The artwork inside is splendid and the quality of light was beautiful. I thoroughly recommend this short day-trip. I hired a car and it was easy to get to by road.

“One of the most beautiful Gothic churches in Czech Republic”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

If you are visiting Czech Republic and have some time to travel outside Prague this should be on your itinerary! Beautiful (mostly late) Gothic church (incorrectly refereed to as a cathedral) is certainly a jewel to visit.

“Wonderful church with much history”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

I really enjoyed my recent visit to the church. It is very well preserved and there are personal audio guides and information brochures to help you understand all the history. The day we were there it snowed which added it's own beauty. The view from the church back to the city is just amazing.

“Staggering”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

The quiet peaceful interior is definitely worth a look, but the real beauty of St Barbara's is the exterior, not only is it a beautiful sight, but from it's position atop a small hill, you are presented with a view across the small town which is worth the walk in itself.
