Overview

Discover the splendors of Kutná Hora, once nicknamed the ‘City of Silver’, on this day trip from Prague. With an expert guide, travel through the countryside by coach to the UNESCO-listed Czech town that built its wealth on silver mining and once rivaled Prague. Explore sights on foot such as the Sedlec Ossuary, a chapel decorated with human bones; and then devote your attention to the medieval Old Town. Enjoy free time for lunch and see the Church of St Barbara, the former Royal Mint and other landmarks as your guide recounts Kutna’s history.
  • Kutná Hora day trip from Prague by private bus, led by an expert guide
  • Visit the macabre Sedlec Ossuary, created from human skulls and bones
  • Explore UNESCO-listed Kutná Old Town, including magnificent St Barbara Church
  • Enjoy the scenery on a return bus ride through central Bohemia
Make your own way to central Prague and meet your guide. Then, take the bus to the historical Czech town of Kutná Hora, once one of Bohemia’s most important towns.

As you travel, hear about Kutná’s history and how, having grown up around a 12th-century Cistercian monastery, it rose to prominence after the discovery of silver ore in the 13th century, coming to rival Prague in wealth and power during the late Middle Ages.

Once at Kutná, alight from the bus at travel on foot to the Sedlec Ossuary on the town’s outskirts. Enter the chapel and be awestruck by the haunting walls, ceilings and furnishings — all made from or covered in real, medieval human bones. As you inspect the morbid contents, discover why the chapel exists and how the bones are believed to come from around 40,000 people.

Continue into Kutná’s Old Town, an open-air museum awarded UNESCO World Heritage status for its well-preserved medieval architecture. Visit the Gothic Church of St Barbara to admire its opulent interior and wall frescoes of medieval miners, and learn how the church was dedicated to St Barbara, the miners’ patron saint.

Delve into the quaint squares and alleyways, and see other landmarks such as the impressive Italian Court — a fortified building that served as Kutna’s Royal Mint — and the Gothic Hrádek (Little Castle) palace.

Break for lunch (own expense), and in the afternoon, witness more Kutná highlights, including the Knight’s Hall and intricately carved Plague Column.

When the time comes, board the bus to return to Prague, where your tour finishes at the station.

We visited Kutna Hora from Prague with Andrea as our guide. We mostly wanted to see the Ossuary, which was fascinating, but we also got to see some other lovely places and learnt some really great facts. We also had an amazing lunch in an authentic Czech tavern. Andrea was a fantastic guide. I thoroughly recommend this tour.

Words cannot describe how wonderful this tour was. We booked this tour on September 10th, 2019 and were paired with Allen as our tour guide. He was incredibly informative, knowledgeable and so funny. There was not a dull moment on the trip! This was a tour where I wish everyone could have a guide like ours. He expertly fielded every question and made time for even the smallest details. He was also an incredible help with our lunch selection! I wish I could give this 6 stars in the rating it was that good. This is a must do tour while in Prague!

The bone church is a wonder to behold

This trip took us approx 1 hour out of Prague to see the Sedlec Ossuary and the cathedral at Kutna Hora. It was a very enjoyable trip and our guide Andy gave us information and stories to keep us entertained whilst still giving ample time to look around and get pictures. We had lunch in Kutna Hora also in a very nice restaurant called Dacicky. The food was traditional Czech style and it was very tasty. If you have the time to spare I recommend going on this trip (from approx 10am-5:30pm). Lots of interesting things to see and some sensational photo opportunities. If you get Andy as your guide then that's a bonus!

We had the tour with Ryan, who was enthusiastic and incredibly knowledgeable! Everything was organized for us, so we just had to show up at the meeting point and enjoy the day. The bus trip was easy and comfortable, the bone chapel is nothing short of impressive and the town itself is absolutely wonderful. Great option to spend some time away from the crowds and the busy city. Definitely recommend! Thanks for the wealth of knowledge Ryan!
