What a stunning piece of architecture. At 70m tall, it's hard to comprehend how something like this was built without the aid of modern technologies, and to such exquisite detail. Awe inspiring.

What a magnificent place to visit. Its enormous and oppulent with great towers and architecture. The inside is so ornate you will go through a roll of film/ memory card in no time.
So much to see and such a lot to take in.

As this church was completely rebuilt, is a very new structure and for me it wasn't very interesting on the inside.

The size of this cathedral is mind boggling. I love the flying buttresses and the shape of the roof is almost circus tent like. Unlike a previous reviewer, I felt the interior seemed smaller than the exterior. In any case, a massive church. Very impressive. Buy the combo ticket if you're going to the Ossuary too.

We were lucky to have the entire cathedral to ourselves when we visited. It is very impressive, with many interesting sculptures, statues and paintings, including some frescoes from hundreds of years ago. It is quite large, although it seems that it should extend further when you see it, and as we found out, it was originally supposed to. Due to circumstances at the time, they had to make it shorter. It is well worth a visit, as is the town of Kutna Hora if you can get out there. Also, the walk to the cathedral is excellent, past the Jesuit college with a view out over the valley.
