Kutna Hora Things to Do

  • THE MARBLE HOUSE

    The Marble House was quite different to the other old buildings, this was because the whole front had been painted with frescoes. Looking at them I would say a story was told, of what I don't know ! I can't find out anything at all! Do go and have a look though, or even a meal, as it is used at the Tex-Mex Restaurant now.

  • THE KNIGHTS HOUSE

    I noticed this old house because of its lovely façade that included a pair of Knights.It is a Burghers house but differs from the others as it was built in Classicist style in 1824.Real easy to find as it's opposite the stone fountain.

  • CHURCH OF ST. JACOB [St. James Church]

    This Church I happened to view from the Terrace on my way to visit St. Barbara's Church. The view from here was lovely, especially of the Church that dominated the hill in Kutna Hora. I decided to walk to it afterwards which is what I did, only to be confronted with a lot of scaffolding and a closed Church. This wasn't the reason it was closed, it...

  • Traditional Czech pub

    Sometimes good fortune shines and it happened to us in Kutna Hora as we were looking for somewhere to have lunch. We stumbled upon a traditional Czech pub which has been operating for about 400 years here. Its interior is extremely inviting with a bar in the front room which is colorfully decorated and well populated. The main dining room is just...

Kutna Hora Nightlife

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I must say that North Bohemian cities are not the most thrilling places by night. Other than places to eat and drink the local brews, I didn't see much of anything to do. Even Kutna Hora was devoid of much, at least in the what I imagine to be the offseason. It is nice to walk about with no tourist as most of them just daytrip from Prague. A lot of the city is still flood lit and you can get some nice photos.

Kutna Hora Transportation

  • Getting to Kutna Hora on the Train

    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...

    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.

    We found this shop on one of the streets of Kutna Hora which sold morbid puppets. Witches with stake through their hearts, creatures of the night, devils with horns, women with rocks tied around their necks...etcI lugged two around throughout my travels, one for myself and one for a friend. They were just too morbid to pass up.Several shops sell...

  • a bone-shop in Prague

    This is what they offer :Great artificial bones, set into works of art...NOT AT ALL so very special as in Kutna Hora but where else may you buy stuff like that ?? The prices are a bit higher than other chandeliers in Czechia, but certainly still cheaper than in Your country !

Kutna Hora Local Customs

  • Try the local beers....

    The Czech Republic is justifiably noted for its great beers. Though the Germans invented lager, it was the Czechs who invented the pilsner, the light colored lager that dominates the world today. There are many great beers to try here though many of them are vanishing as big brands like Pilsner Urquell and Budvar dominate the market place. There is...

  • Extraordinary custom

    Very extraordinary (for my point of view) custom in Kutna Hora: humans who were buried long time ago raising from they graves and they bones bury under the church. In the picture you can see the element of one of the churches. All things of interior (candeliers, decorations, blazons etc.) are made from human bones.

Kutna Hora Tourist Traps

  • JetlagCity's Profile Photo

    by JetlagCity Updated Aug 13, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I really hesitate to call anything in this town a tourist trap, but I'm putting this here because I didn't feel like I got much value for my money on this tour. There just wasn't that much to see at this buiding they call The Italian Court, only a few old coins - I guess if you were a coin collector this place might be really interesting, but for me it was a yawn. I would've spent my time better just wandering around the timeless streets of this village, soaking up the atmosphere.

Kutna Hora What to Pack

  • Pack a zoomie

    A zoom lens is great for getting detailed photos of statues, monuments, or even just door adornments like this one.

  • Bring a tripod!

    A tripod is invaluable when taking night photos. Needless to say, I didn't have one and though I was creative in "finding" natural ones, sometimes I moved the camera at just the wrong instant!

Kutna Hora Off The Beaten Path

  • ZLEBY CHATEAU

    A short drive of 20kms from Kutna Hora brought us to the town of Zleby and its Chateau. The Zleby Chateau dates back to before 1289 and was originally founded as a Gothic fortress under the Lichtenburk family. In the late 15th century it was rebuilt in the Renaissance style, then in the 16th century reconstructed again in Baroque style. The last...

  • SCENERY AROUND KUTNA HORA

    We found the scenery in this area to be rural and quite scenic.In April [Spring] when we drove to Zleby, we passed by huge Farmhouses and outbuildings, villages, we saw a Wooden Church, great views and drove along roads where trees full of white blossom lined the edges. The road to Zleby was very quiet, an off the beaten track road [route 337]!

  • INSIDE SEDLEC CATHEDRAL

    Another UNESCO listed Church, and another beauty. There is a small admission fee I paid upon entry, then it was time to look around. This Cathedral was built in Gothic style, so inside it has magnificent soaring ceilings that reach for the sky and lots of arches at ground level. Painted a lovely lemon and white, I found the inside very appealing....

Kutna Hora Favorites

  • YOU WON'T GET LOST!

    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...

  • ARCHITECTURALY BEAUTIFUL!

    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...

    more
  • SIGNAGE ON BUILDINGS

    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.
