Begin with pickup at your Prague accommodations at the time of your choice, then travel to Kutná Hora in a private vehicle. Learn about Kutná Hora’s Middle Ages history as Bohemia’s second city, and about the silver mines that helped it prosper. Visit the Church of St. Barbara to see Bohemian gothic architecture at its finest, from medieval frescoes of everyday life to the elaborate peaked roofline.
Explore some of Kutná Hora’s narrow streets on foot, then continue to the Royal Mint, where Prague’s Grossus coin was issued by King Wenceslaus of Bohemia. If desired, descend into the medieval mines, where silver for the coins was extracted by hand in terrifying working conditions.
Make a final stop at the Bone Church, also called the Sedlec Ossuary, which is decorated with bones from the skeletons of between 40,000 and 70,000 people. Stand beneath the staggering bone chandelier, which contains at least one of every bone in the human body, and learn how the macabre chapel was designed by a 19th-century Czech carpenter. After visiting Kutná Hora, make the return trip to Prague, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.
