Tourist information, pictures, and hotels for Kutna Hora, Czech Republic


Kutna HoraKutná Hora is located about 70 Kilometers East of Prague, and it is just as lovely as Prague, but at a lower price level and with an even more friendly population.

A little history
Silver mining has provided the basis for the settlement as early as the 13th century. Due to the extra revenue from the silver, Kutná Hora quickly became the second most important city in the country. About one third of the silver mined in Europe came from Kutná Hora. During the 16th century, mining has lost its importance, but it regained some of its former fame in the 18th century. If you visit the city, do not forget to visit the mining museum to learn about the past of Kutná Hora.

Even though the city has lost most of its fame, there are more than 300 protected middle-age or baroque buildings. Since 1995, the historical city center is part of the UNESCO world heritage.

Sights to visit
Do not miss the St. Barabara Cathedral, the gothic church and the chapel, which is referred to as the ?chapel of bones? by the locals. Hrádek and the Stone House (Kamenny dum) late gothic building functions as a museum nowadays. The former functions as a museum of mining, with two permanent exhibitions: City of Silver and Silver Road.
