Kutna Hora is a desirable tourist destination and an excellent place for a splendid day trip from Prague. Kutna Hora is a small town in Central Bohemia about 90 km far away from Prague. I went there from Prague, and it will take me 1.30 hours to reach there by public transport. The air was clean and refreshing, and the town was charming and secure.-
Down are topmost famous spots of attraction in Kutna Hora.
Sedlec Ossuary – The Church of Bones
The Sedlec ossuary creatively decorated with more than 40,000 human skeletons. Quite shocking? In starting, it was the same situation for me. But after spending some time inside the chapel, I felt fine and there was nothing to fear. It was such a tremendous fascinating artistic work.
Sedlec Ossuary is a large chandelier of bones that lies in the centre of the bone church, and it contains at least one of every human bone. Want to know about the story behind this?

Sedlec is a lovely little village. And I stopped for a drink at a bit of shop very near to the church and had a delicious honey cake with coffee.
Cathedral of Assumption
Cathedral of the Assumption of Our Lady and Saint John the Baptist is a UNESCO World Heritage site with amazing views both inside and outside. It started to build in the 12th century for Cistercian monks. It has been rebuilt several times throughout the centuries.
The notable view is richly decorated with a beautiful Baroque painting of the Assumption on the ceiling above. And it has right panels to describe the artwork.

It would be fascinating to see the top of the columns and the construction of the roof. Go up the spiralling staircase to view it.
Saint Barbara’s Church
Saint Barbara’s church is situated at the top of a hill in beautiful grounds. The cathedral is gorgeous, both inside and out. This old century construction will amaze you on the architecture style, splendid sketches, sculptures and beautifully painted windows and ceiling.

Surely you would be loving capturing pictures of historical buildings, ancient spaces, and famous statues.
So, It was my last insight of the day. Italian Court is a gorgeous country yard with a fascinating museum, and this space is one of its great treasures. Here you will learn about the old historical mint system, silver mining and coin making. I got a chance to make a coin by myself.
And the staff is so good. It is better to hire a guide to understand the brief history of Czech royalty.
