Below the 15th century Cemetery Church of All Saints at the center lies the curiously fascinating Bone Chapel. After a lunch break at an excellent and very modestly priced (main course around 5 EUR) Czech restaurant you will take a tour through Kutná Hora’s UNESCO World Heritage Old Town.
You might stare in awe as the guide shows you a chandelier comprising of at least one of every bone in the human body, pyramids of skulls and delicately crafted shields of arms made of…yes, you guessed it, arms! Kutná Hora however is much more than the Bone Chapel! Thanks to the town’s prosperous silver mines, Kutná Hora became the second most decadent city in the Bohemian kingdom in the middle ages and flourished, rivaling Prague economically, culturally and politically.
Eventually, the silver dried up and the town was ravaged by two Holy Wars, but what was left behind still wows tourists to this day: beautiful buildings such as the glorious gothic masterpiece St. Barbara’s Church, the sumptuous Italian Court and Royal Residence and Hrádek, shape an exquisite landscape.
