The easier and faster way to get to Kutna Hora is by train. Go from Praha hl.n (the main train station) to Kutna Hora hl.n. The trip takes right about an hour.
Please remember that the main train station in Kutna Hora is basically at the other end of town from the main sights. You can transfer trains to Kutna Hora Mesto, which is only like a 7 minute train ride.
You can walk, its a few kilometers, so maybe a half hour walking at most. Bear in mind, however, that if you walk it is mostly residential areas (and not especially pretty ones) until you get to the Town Center.
Finally, you can take the tourist bus from in front of the main train station that will take you directly to the Bone Church. This is the most efficient way to go in my opinion.
Kutna Hora is in Central Bohemia, about 70km east of Prague
It takes about an hour by train and cost about USD 5.50 one way for one person.
You really do not need to pay for a tour. It's very easy to get there and around as an independent traveller.
Just do your home work, print out a train schedule for a convenient day. Make sure you search for the Kutná Hora mìsto station.
There are several direct trains from the Prague main train station (metro 'Museum' + 5 min walk) each day and many more connections if you are willing to change at Kolin.
Trains are very comfortable and clean.
Trains arrive at Kutna Hora main station (Kutna Hora hl.n.), which is a ten minute walk from the famous ‘bone-church’.
Overall time 58 min., distance 73 km, one way price 104 CZK.
Note: "Nastupisti" means "platform";
"K autobusu" - "to the bus"
All train come to the Main Station witch is in a suburb.
You can walk from the Kutna Hora train station to the Sedlec Ossuary 'bone church'
The way to the centre from the Sedlec Ossuary isn't signed well up to know and it takes about 40 min (walk about 3 km/ 2.5 miles) and pretty boring as well.
Taxi cost us about USD 4.00 and took 5 min.
There are two train stations in Kutna Hora.
1) Main station (Kutná Hora hl.n.) is in the outer suburb of Sedlec, a 10 min walk from the 'bone church'.
2) Kutná Hora Mìsto (town centre) station, which is a short walk from the old town.
You can take a local train if you would like to start your visit from the old town (8 min, 10 Czk).
For those who have limited mobility, there are some fairly reasonable options to get you from the train station to the main sights.
The "tourist bus" and you can't miss it. It will take you from the station to the Ossuary and St Barbara's. They are parked in front of the above mentioned places. They require 3 people to ride. Cost is 35 crowns.
You can always get the local bus (9 crowns) which was perfectly fine when our group took it. Catch bus #1 at the Hlavni Nadrezi station, the bus will take you to Kutna Hora Mesto (town center)
Finally, there is a train station in the historical core of Kutna Hora, (Kutna Hora Mesto) that runs trains (smaller,older) to the main train station so you can catch your train back to Prague.
Follow the D11 motorway to Exit 39 Podebrady-jih then go by highway no.38 via Kolin (approximately 80 km)
Buses leave Prague from Florenc bus station (metro station Florenc, line C), duration about an hour and a half for a direct connection. Cost is about 68 CK.
You can also try some of the private bus companies that might get you there a bit faster.
It is very easy to get to Kutna Hora by train, the only thing to bear in mind is that you have to change trains at K H main station (K H hlavni nadrazi) which is in Sedlec, 2 - 3km from Kutna Hora town. From here you can either take the local bus 1 on weekdays, leaving every 30 min, or you can take the little local train into K H city station (mesto nadrazi). The train will cost you ~10Kc, and it takes less than 10 min from one station to the other.
We went from Prague to Kutna Hora by train, which took about an hour. At the main railway station in Prague the elderly woman behind the counter didn't speak a word of English, but we managed to get the tickets. The tickets weren't for an exact train, they were valid for the next 24 hrs so you could pick any train for Kutna Hora. I had printed out the timetable from the Czech railway website, so we had some idea how the trains would leave. It was a convenient trip, we had our own booth and the train was on time. The one-way tickets cost 118 CZK per person.
In Kutna Hora we bought again oneway tickets to Prague and to our surprise they only cost 62 CZK per person! This time we had to wait for the train quite a while, and as all announcements were in Czech only, we had no idea how late the train was or if it was going to arrive at all... Luckily, it did arrive after a while and we started our journey back to Prague. This time it wasn't so pleasant because it was very hot and there was no air conditioning what so ever.
There are direct connection with buses from Prague Florence station to Kutna Hora several times a day. It is possible to buy the ticket from the driver, or in advance online via the link below.
It's easy to take the train to Kutna Hora from Prague. From the central station in Prague, you can take the train every second hour. The trip will take about one hour.
When you arrive to Kutna Hora, I strongly recomment you to take the local train to the bone church. It's just one stop, and it will save you a lot of time of walking. After seeing the bone church, you can walk to the city center of Kutna Hora.
We were traveling to Kutna Hora by car. Distance Prague – Kutna Hora is about 75 km. It is possible to choose two roads – one of them is autobahn, another – regional road. I think using autobahn is more convenient, but it is a bit longer. It is possible comfortably to visit a few nearby cities near road Prague-Kutna Hora as well – Kolin, Podebrady. Distance from St. Barbora Cathedral to Bone Church is better made by car as well.
Kutna Hora is quite walkable city, except the distance between the old part of city and St. Barbora Church to another famous landmark – Bone Church. To get to Bone church better to use car, bus, other transportation.
It is nice to take a walk down the upland area of St. Barbora Church to the old town and see cozy streets, churches, other famous places of this small, but rich city.
It goes from the main train station to the bus staition which is around 500m far from the center.
It travels around 10 min(3 km) . Be careful if you plan to visit Kutna hora on Sunday cause the bus is traveling on 1 hour.The ticket is only 10 CZK.
