Nothing beats a room with a view, and when your view is over a forest area, you are just one extremely lucky person. Can you imagine a few hundred years ago when wild buck and boar was roaming this forest?
Situated just outside of Kutna Hora you will find the Beinhaus. It does not officially form part of the day tour, but if you ask your tourleader, they will take you there. The inside of this church is all decorated by human bones. They used the bones of 40,000 people to complete it. It was started by a priest out of necessity and then completed by some artist.
Telc really has a town square to be proud of. Consisting of only old houses with no single modern building in site. The houses are 300 years and older. The buildings are mostly built in the renaissance style, but you can also find some baroque and rococo houses here.
This little medieval town is a Unesco World Heritage Site. The houses in Tel?, which stands on a hilltop, were originally built of wood. After a fire in the late 14th century, the town was rebuilt in stone, surrounded by walls and further strengthened by a network of artificial ponds. The town's Gothic castle was reconstructed in High Gothic style in the late 15th century.
This former mining town is approx an hour and a half from Prague. I went their on a day trip which was fantastic. The Italian court at one time served as a mint. The statue-lined lane to the St James Church made me think of Charles bridge. The Nazi's established a concentration camp here in 1940.
A 45 minute train journey from Praha-Smichov train station will get you to Karlstejn or else you can take a day trip. This walled and turreted fortres was built by Charles IV to house the crown jewels and holy relics. To get to the fortres, you have to climb quite a steep little hill, although I was a bit lazy and took the horse cart (shown as my intro pic).
Well worth a visit.
We all have to do it, even the Kings and Queens had to do it. This proves that in the olden days they did it the way our forefathers did it.
This is one of the most impressive city entrances that I have seen, you are totally dwarfed by it and feel rather insignificant when entereing the castle grounds.
