Create an itinerary including St Barbara's Church
Famous for its eye-catching spires and well-preserved medieval frescoes, St Barbara's Church counts among the finest Gothic structures in all of Europe, and is inscribed on the World Heritage List. Construction started in 1380 and continued for nearly three centuries, until the silver in the local mine began to run out in the 1550s. Finally completed in the 19th century, the building features ribbed vaulting and several side chapels, noted for their wall murals depicting everyday scenes from the life of a thriving medieval mining town. Take a good look at the frescoes, but don't forget to visit the cathedral's east terrace, offering panoramic views of the city.

  • The view walking up to the Cathedral from old Kutna Hora is jaw dropping enough and once inside the space is simply beautiful. It is good to go up the stairs to the gallery for more excellent...

  • My husband and I came here and were in awe of how beautiful the cathedral was - both outside and in. The gothic architecture is phenomenal. The gargoyle pieces upstairs were also nice to see...

  • The most beautiful cathedral i've ever been able to visit. Definitely worth a visit but weekdays might be best as more shops in the area would be open and restaurants too. You can go inside 160Kč for an adult. No photography or videoing allowed. No dogs allowed. Inside is spectacular and you can also follow steps in the corner to go upstairs and look down from above and also out to the front balcony which also give a beautiful view.
  • I didn't expect I'd be so amazed by this temple. An Architectural gem, with a vast variety of monuments around and a unique light inside the temple due to the unusually large windows. Certainly worth visiting!
