Town of Kutna Hora
What will cross you mind when you hear the words “Kutna Hora”?
formerly the second most significant town of the Czech Kingdom, the “source of silver Prague Groschens”?
town inscribed on the list of the UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage since 1995?
town with two cathedrals and a unique well-preserved historic core?
town which will let you see the Middle Ages?
Yes, this all is Kutna Hora – its historic core is an architectural gem of European importance. In December 1995 the town, its St. Barbara Cathedral and the Church of Assumption of Our Lady in Sedlec were inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
The time when Kutna Hora hosted Czech kings are gone, the fame of Kutna Hora silver mines is over and the silver Groschens are no longer minted in the Italian Court. But the history remains and you can see it all around, looking at the houses, churches and wandering in the narrows streets...
Besides monuments, museums and galleries, Kutna Hora offers cosy restaurants with excellent kitchen, ACCOMMODATION in cosy boarding-houses and stylish hotels situated in the historic part of the town.
We invite you to visit our town, formerly called a “treasury” and “gem” of the country. Come and see the unique town of Kutna Hora!
