St Barbara's Church, Kutna Hora

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.

  • This was a real surprise with a beautiful interior- look up at the ceiling- situated at the top of a hill in beautiful grounds. There is a wonderful vantage point just outside with spectacular views.  more »
  • We booked from Prague a tour to visit the city of Kutna Hora and this included the visit to St. Barbara Cathedral an imposing Gothic cathedral restored on several occasions in which I change a little its original style but without losing the beauty of its concept. both the size of the temple and its location are impressive because in addition one does not expect to find a monument of that magnitude in a city so far from the capital, but that is when we learned thanks to the guide that that city at the time was almost so important like Prague thanks to its silver mines. A visit without a doubt very instructive and beautiful.

  • Beautiful Cathedral. It was renovated during last few years so now you can get pictures and all the views in best condition. Nowadays they renovate statues in promenade from back side of Cathedral. Atmosphere in this place is just lovely. When you go down the promenade you will find many nice shops and good restaurants. Definitely don't forget to visit mine of silver. They will take you down to underground and you are gonna love that.
  • Such a awesome cathedral! At day and night the building and the garden are beautiful. Also inside it's beautiful and nice to see the history.
