What You Can Expect

Kutna Hora Bus Day Trip from Prague

See a chapel decorated with skulls and bones!

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, travel 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, catch the return bus to Prague, where your tour finishes at the station.

Easily one of the coolest and weirdest places I've ever been. The bone church was so amazing to see and hear the history about. St. Barbra's was stunning inside and seeing the rest of Kutna Hora was so much fun. We've taken a lot of tours while traveling and Tijo was easily my favorite guide. He's so funny, nice and knowledgeable. This trip is definitely worth checking out.

Jirka was an excellent guide, very informative and added a lot of information both about the places we visited as well as the Czech Republic and Prague in general. He was also very witty and kept the group laughing throughout.

This was a great tour. It ended up being closer to a small group tour as we only filled half of bus and the Spanish speaking group filled the other half. There was plenty of time at the ossuary and great information and history information throughout the tour of Kutna Hora. We would have preferred a bit more information regarding Czech republic during the hour car ride to Kutna Hora. Lunch was part of the tour price not included and the place was good. Wild boar goulash with gingerbread dumplings is the house specialty and one of the best things we ate on the trip. Our tour guide was very good and provided some great information on the city and its history.

Our guide Tatiana was amazing! I liked how she explained everything, pointed highlights out and then let us roam on our own to take pictures and explore, so I never felt rushed. The tavern that we went to for lunch was very good too. Best tour and guide I had while in Prague!

Good trip. Guide did a good job. Kept us out of the sun whilst waiting for the trip to begin. Most ESSENTIAL is being taken back to start of the tour as most people are on tour - he did this. He found a good clean toilet. Info very good and he was enthused wanting to show more.

A great trip outside of Prague by coach with historical commentaries on the former mining town, the chapel of human bones, magnificent St Barbara's tent-like roof, a local Czech lunch at an old inn, and beautiful scenery to and from Prague. Our tour guide Andrea was enthusiastic and very informative throughout the tour and always ensured everyone's safety and convenience. A pleasant tour indeed.

Fabulous, very informative tour. Guide was excellent, Michael, he was really well read and well informed on the places to the extent he could express opinions so clearly not scripted. All very good fun and the restaurant for lunch was exceptional and very cheap. High to recommend the tour
