Overview
Make the most of the medieval history on show at Kutna Hora and travel there and back with ease on a full-day trip from Prague. Sit back and admire the Bohemian countryside on route to UNESCO-listed Kutna by air-conditioned bus, and get the full lowdown on its sights from your guide, including the Sedlec bone chapel. Selected entrance fees and a break for lunch (own expense) are included.
What to Expect
Meet your guide in central Prague and make your way to the main bus station (5-10 min walking distance from the meeting point in Old Town Square). Then, board the private bus for Kutná Hora, the Czech Republic’s ‘City of Silver’ — a 13th-century silver mining town in central Bohemia that competed with Prague for power and riches in the Middle Ages.

Admire the Bohemian countryside, arrive in Kutná Hora and head for your first stop, the Sedlec Ossuary. On the way, hear more about Kutná’s history and how the town grew after the establishment of the Sedlec Monastery, a sanctuary for Cistercian monks, in the 12th century. Head inside the Sedlec Ossuary and gape at the macabre, bone-made interior. Inspect the chandelier and furnishings made entirely from human bones, and hear how the interior contains the skeletons of around 40,000 people. As you take in the bone creations, you’ll understand completely why the ossuary draws flocks of visitors.

Next, head for Kutná’s UNESCO-listed Old Town, a treasure chest of medieval architecture. Visit the magnificent Gothic Church of St Barbara and marvel at its echoing interior, replete with frescoes that show medieval miners. As you walk round, hear how the church was dedicated to St Barbara, the patron saint of miners, and was part of Kutná’s efforts to rival Prague.

After, delve further into the romantic streets and squares, passing gems such as the Italian Court — the former Royal Mint — and the fortified Hrádek palace.

Make a brief stop for lunch (own expense), and then check out more Kutná highlights, including the Knight’s Hall and richly carved Plague Column, before catching your return bus.

Your tour ends back in central Prague, when you say goodbye to your guide at the station.

Like some others have said, it’s not non stop walking. Mostly flat except for one hilly section. Just use caution as a lot of the roads and walkways are cobblestone. Plenty of rest, as an active go go go person, I felt there... More
