I was working with some people and they decided to give me a day off so I wasn't able to plan this trip through. I was exploring around the city centrum and its beautiful churches until I found a stunning view to this cathedral. I was in awe. So I decided to have lunch and then walk there. 15min, that's...

Kutna Hora was a wonderful day trip. This church is just a short walk from the Bone Church. Make sure to walk around back and see the view from the bridge. It was made to look like the Charles Bridge. My 9yo and 5yo loved it.

We took a group tour to Kutna Hora and this was part of the tour. It is a beautiful cathedral and it has an added bonus of an amazing path to get to the church. It is copied from St. Catherine's Bridge in Prague. We took many pictures inside and out. If you love architectural churches, you'll love this one.

The church has been built in dedication to Santa Barbara who was supposed to have helped the miners. It has been built from sandstone that had been mined from quarries in the area. It has been built in stages, spanning about 500 years. Don't miss this gem when already in the area visiting the church of bones. It is as... More

This church is very striking from the outside, and impressive. However, even though the inside is beautiful and detailed, there is not a lot of information given. It is also pretty chilly inside, so wear something warm!

Lovely outside and inside. You can take lots of pics but no flash. Has some original "choir" seats from Gothic period. Original wall frescos also. Worth a quick tour when around Kutna Hora.

Wow. This is a stunning gothic / baroque church (Yes, it's a church and NOT a cathedral). Construction started in 1388 but actually wasn't not completed until 1905, which is good thing, or you wouldn't have the extraordinary stained windows by Mucha which are the most beautiful I've ever seen, in the art nouveau style. More beautiful in my opinion... More

Prague Travel Limited with Helen from the Ukraine was fantastic day trip. The church is spectacular and Helen knows her stuff. She was a wealth of information about Prague and Kutna Hora. We enjoyed the tour in and around the church. The views were beautiful. The gothic architecture is a must see.

One of the Best gothic Cathedral in czech Republic. Amazing view on the city from here. But not many restaurants and bars around. One hour visit basicly. Whole town is beautiful

St. Barbara's is a beautiful ornate cathedral. We couldn't go inside, so I can't say what the inside is like, but it is definitely worth the walk to see it. Beautiful little walkway with statues to get there. Amazing view of the town and the little vineyard.
