Itinerary
Make your own way to central Prague and meet your guide. Then, take the bus to the historical Czech town of Kutná Hora, once one of Bohemia’s most important towns.
As you travel, hear about Kutná’s history and how, having grown up around a 12th-century Cistercian monastery, it rose to prominence after the discovery of silver ore in the 13th century, coming to rival Prague in wealth and power during the late Middle Ages.
Once at Kutná, travel to the Sedlec Ossuary on the town’s outskirts. Enter the chapel and be awestruck by the haunting walls, ceilings and furnishings — all made from or covered in real, medieval human bones. As you inspect the morbid contents, discover why the chapel exists and how the bones are believed to come from around 40,000 people.
Continue into Kutná’s Old Town, an open-air museum awarded UNESCO World Heritage status for its well-preserved medieval architecture. Visit the Gothic Church of St Barbara to admire its opulent interior and wall frescoes of medieval miners, and learn how the church was dedicated to St Barbara, the miners’ patron saint.
Delve into the quaint squares and alleyways, and see other landmarks such as the impressive Italian Court — a fortified building that served as Kutna’s Royal Mint — and the Gothic Hrádek (Little Castle) palace.
Break for lunch (own expense), and in the afternoon, witness more Kutná highlights, including the Knight’s Hall and intricately carved Plague Column.
When the time comes, catch the return bus to Prague, where your tour finishes at the station.

Really great day

This was a really great day. Our guide was Terry and she was really friendly and knowledgeable. The trip was well arranged and saw everything as promised. My only criticism is that the end of the tour after lunch was a little rushed.

Great Trip

It was a fantastic day and all the logistics were very well arranged. Our guide Neil, an American guy, he was so funny and he actually knows a lot about the history, the site we visited. He absolutely made the day great.
