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.

Really amazing tour and an amazing tour guide. Kutna Hora is awesome and the bone chapel is out of this world. The cathedral is superb as well, with fantastic art work. All in all a great day

Great day trip! We had a wonderful guide, Ian, who was very knowledgeable and personable. The Sedlec Ossuary is amazing to see in person, you can read about it and see pictures but it something different in person... it inspired a proposal from a couple in our tour group!
The St. Barbara's was absolutely stunning, great photo opportunities. Definitely recommend this trip!

Excellent. Our guide Tijo was personable and spoke excellent English. I had thought we would have free time to explore, but the guide stayed with the group and took us to all the various sights. That was fine. Lunch was good and we enjoyed every stop. The church with the bone ossuary far exceeded expectations, as did St. Barbara's and the Italian court that had previously been the location of the mint. The town itself was quite atmospheric and charming. There were fantastic photo ops and it was a wonderful day. Highly recommended!!!

It was an amazing day trip with an informative,knowledgeable and funny guide. Big luxury coach for only one hour drive which was very comfortable. Both of bone church and St Barbara church are amazing and must see. We stopped at a restaurant in the old town to have lunch which was delicious and filling . We would have preferred a bit more information regarding Czech republic during the hour car ride to Kutna Hora.

Lovely day with Ryan Hume who offered a lot of great fun facts. The ossuary is definitely the highlight of this trip but the church of St. Barbara was just as interesting.
