Kutna Hora Travel Guide

Czech Republic, Kutna Hora Guide (B): Kutna Hora Travel Guide

A church made of bones. No, it’s not some 1980’s South American metal band (although I wish it was); it’s even more brutal. It’s exactly as described.

The picturesque Bohemian town of Kutná Hora, situated about 70km east of Prague, is home to three stunning churches; the most fascinating of which is Sedlec Ossuary. The macabre Roman Catholic Chapel contains the artistically arranged bones of more than 40,000 humans, a result of mass graves in the area dating back to the 14th century. It’s a uniquely harrowing experience to visit this strange, eery building in a beautiful small Czech town, and something you will never forget.

From Prague the best way to reach Kutná Hora is by train. Trains depart Prague Hlavní Nádraží almost hourly and cost around 100CZK (£2.90) one way for the one hour journey, check the schedules here.

You can choose to arrive in either Kutná Hora město station, which is close to the main town, or Kutná Hora hl.n which is a ten minute walk to Sedlec Ossuary, but a 50 minute walk to the town. We chose the latter and walked straight to the Ossuary. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
