Next, visit the 12th-century Romanesque Church of St. Jacob in Cirkvice, declared a national cultural monument in 2008, before traveling to the Kačina Chateau, an impressive, 19th-century imperial-style residence set in magnificent parkland.
After admire the stately chateau, head into the UNESCO-protected center of Kutná Hora. Learn about Kutná’s history as a silver mining town, and absorb the old-world sights around the cobbled streets.
