Kutná Hora & Bone Church Private Day Trip
Tereza YOU like it
Once a favorite residence of the Czech kings, this majestic town will enchant you with its remarkable history and fascinating architecture as well as peacefulness and slower pace. Oh, and if the town's atmosphere itself doesn’t give you chills, I know what will - the famous Bone Church made of 40.000 skeletons.
St. Barbara Church | the Sedlec Ossuary known as Church of Bones | the Medieval Silver Mine
What you will see and learn:
Visiting Kutna Hora is like traveling a few hundred years back in time. The fame and glory of this town, now listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, began in 1142 end grew mostly thanks to silver mining. It's mining heritage is present everywhere in Kutná Hora, including the most significant symbol and the pride of the town’s miner being the Gothic jewel of St. Barbara’s Church.
Feel like experiencing something extra? Let me take you to an authentic medieval mine over 100 feet under ground and learn how the silver was mined.
After a lunch in a local tavern something truly unforgettable awaits you. Imagine the most interesting burial grounds in the world - a church made of 40.000 human bones. The design of the Sedlec Ossuary is haunting and fascinating at the same time.
While I the bone chapel impresses me every time, my favorite stop of this trip is the nearby Cathedral of Assumption of Our Lady, designed by a famous architect Jan Blažej Santini. If you decide to walk with me all the way to the cathedral’s attic, you will not only enjoy a breathtaking view, but you might truly feel the presence of God here.
You will learn quite a bit about the Kutná Hora history throughout the centuries, both hard facts and interesting bits of information like why would anyone design a huge chandelier using every type of bone in human body. I will also talk to you about whatever you want to know about the present - how we live, what are habbits are, where are the differences and what we have in common.
