What to expect

Starting from Prague’s Old Town square, the tour begins with a train ride (ca. 1 hour) from Prague’s Hlavni Nádraží train station, through lovely Bohemian countryside, to Kutna Hora.

There you will visit the eerie Sedlec Ossuary, which lies below the 15th century Cemetery Church of All Saints, with the curiously fascinating Bone Chapel.
Stare in awe as our 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!

After a lunch break at an excellent and very modestly priced (main course around 5 EUR) Czech restaurant you will take a tour through Kutna Hora’s UNESCO World Heritage Old Town. Kutna Hora however is much more than the Bone Chapel! Thanks to the town’s prosperous silver mines, Kutna 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 Hradek, shape an exquisite landscape.

The detailed list of places you will visit is: the Sedlec Ossuary (Bone Chapel), Saint Barbara’s Church, Hrádek, Sankturin House, the Plague Column, Bohemia’s oldest Cistercian Monastery, St. James’ Church, the Italian Court, the Royal Mint, Ruthardska Street, the Jesuit College and the Stone House.
