The location is almost overpowering. The outside is great. I am not into Baroque but the stain glass windows were something else. The history very interesting and you can hire a private guide as well. Get somewhat crowded with all the groups. You always need time to take the history in and to appreciate it all. Lovely views outside to... More

Well worth the 1 hour drive to Kutna Hora, interesting history of the Czech people. If nothing else the classical Gothic architecture is worth the visit.

Impressive for a small-town church to have not one but two churches of this size, a testament to the wealth brought by silver mining.

St Barbara is stunningly beautiful with very unusual spires and flying buttresses. Definitely ranks with St Vitus, Prague, which was its builders' intent. It is amazing such a wonderful cathedral is in such a small village, but then, when it was funded, Kutna Hora was one of the world's wealthiest. Easy hour drive from Prague through beautiful countryside (take route... More

It was a breathtaking view as you descend towards the cathedral - in the inside the wall paintings were a must see

We were constantly amazed by just how many beautiful cathedrals and churches they've packed into one relatively small country! This was another beautiful example of the creativity of humans and a lovely way to spend an hour in Kutna Hora. Worth the price of admission to go inside although if you're short on time, even just walking around the outside... More

Beautiful gothic church, very impressive from the inside and outside. Nice bridge, which is a reproduction of famous Charles bridge, leads to this cathedral. We visited it as a part of tour, but can be also accessed by public transport.
