Have to say I had fairly high hopes for this place prior to coming. And boy did it deliver. The journey from Prague to Kutna Hora is short and uneventful, just about 40 minutes or so. The church itself is just about 10 minutes walk...More

There are strange ossuaries scattered throughout Europe, but this one is pretty special. Do not miss it on any visit to Kutna Hora. Recommended!

We called in after travelling out from Prague by train. As it was a nice day we walked to here from the station. We bought a combination ticket as it was better value. I'm sure that all the human bones would freak some people out...More
