    YOU WON'T GET LOST!

    by balhannah Written Jan 7, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Look for these in Kutna Hora

    Favorite thing: The old part of Kutna Hora is best walked around as the sights are fairly compact.

    What I really liked in Kutna Hora was the amount of signage showing in which direction certain sights were located. Beside doors and along walls were photos and names of more than one tourist destination, attached to a green board and with an arrow in what direction to walk to find it. You will be able to see this in the photo.

    This made it very easy to see all the sights in the old city and really NOT to get lost!

    ARCHITECTURALY BEAUTIFUL!

    Kutna Hora
    4 more images

    Favorite thing: The former royal mining town of Kutná Hora is known as one of Europes most impressive historic towns, that is why it is UNESCO listed. As this town was quite wealthy from Silver, many of the buildings are quite opulent on the outside, probably on the inside too if you could see!
    Not all made it through the war years, but there are still plenty to see. The houses have been renovated and restored and look resplendent in new paint with much stucco work.
    The old town of Kutna Hora is now very colourful and worth a visit along with the other important sites.
    I found a few buildings that weren't restored - not many though!

    SIGNAGE ON BUILDINGS

    Kutna Hora
    2 more images

    Favorite thing: Just like Prague, Kutna Hora has buildings with hanging signs depicting what type of business is in that building. This is because the buildings were there before street names and signage came around.
    Myself, I love the old signs! They are quite clever in advertising their wares.

    STATUES ON BUILDINGS

    by balhannah Written Jan 6, 2014

    Kutna Hora
    4 more images

    Favorite thing: Kutna Hora is town with a lot to offer in the way of extras on buildings. As there are so many Churches in the town, I wasn't that surprised to find religious statues street side and on the corners of homes. A lot of the buildings had all sorts of figures, I really don't know the meaning of many, I wish I did as I think there may be an interesting story to tell!
    So, once again look up, and look down again before walking on the cobblestones!

    Favorite thing: I am a lover of the real old doors of Europe. They come in all styles, all sizes, lots of different patterns, and some even have an interesting door knocker.
    Well, for people that love doors, then Kutna Hora might just be "door heaven," for I found plenty of beauties.
    Keep your eyes open as you walk around, these old buildings are prime places for old doors.

    Cathedral of the Assumption of Our Lady

    2 more images

    Favorite thing: Take a look at this gorgeous wooden work!

    It's difficult to believe that this church was abandoned for so long and even used as a tobacco factory. Only in 1806 the Cathedral was returned to the church purposes.

    Fondest memory: Now the monastery and the Church of the Assumption of Our Lady was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

    How to find the objects.

    by Askla Written Dec 12, 2012

    Favorite thing: I have put links to Google Map in my tips to make it easier to find the objects mentioned, when possible to get the right position. The links are marked in italics. Unfortunately Google Map isn't very precise and too often points to other buildings than the wanted one.
