What to expect?

Where in the world where can you see an entire church chapel decorated with the bones of over 40,000 human beings? The answer is Kutna Hora – a forgotten town, frozen in time.

Join us on our seven-hour tour to this incredible UNESCO world heritage-listed place and discover just why Kutna Hora is rated amongst the most amazing sites in Europe.


Starting in Prague’s Old Town square, the tour starts with a train ride from Prague’s Hlavni Nádraží train station through the breath-taking Bohemian countryside, arriving in Kutna Hora an hour later.
Then, at the heart of a well-preserved graveyard we will find the eerie Sedlec Ossuary. Below the 15th century Cemetery Church of All Saints at the center, lies the curiously fascinating Bone Chapel.

Stare in awe as our guide shows you a chandelier comprising of at least one of every bone in the human body, pyramids of skulls and delicately crafted shields of arms made of…yes, you guessed it, arms!

 

But if you think the tour starts and finishes with the Bone chapel, you have another thing coming! Thanks to the town’s prosperous silver mines, Kutna Hora became the second most decadent city in the Bohemian kingdom in the middle ages and flourished, rivaling Prague economically, culturally and politically.

 

Eventually, the silver dried up and the town was ravaged by two Holy Wars, but what was left behind still wows tourists to this day: beautiful buildings such as the glorious gothic masterpiece St. Barbara’s Church, the sumptuous Italian Court and Royal Residence and Hradek, shape an exquisite landscape.

 

Follow our guide on this wonderful tour that will take you back in time, as they weave the intriguing tales of kings, queens, monks, soldiers, saints and sinners that shaped this fascinating and forgotten town.

I took this tour when I was in Prague three months ago, and I cannot put into words how much this place impressed me. It was something special, frightening, mysterious and amazing at the same time! Where else you can find the bone chapel and things made with human bones!? The tour was quite long, about 7 hours, but I don’t regret that I took it, by the way, the price was moderate, as for me. Worth every cent :). I advise everyone who visits Prague not to miss the opportunity to take this wonderful tour. You will enjoy it!

The tour was very interesting, informative and unusual. Kutna Hora is a unique place, and I am glad that I have seen it with my own eyes. Everything was organized very well, no problems with transport and lines although the place is very popular with the tourists. A special “thank you” for our narrative and talented guide who helped us on the way and shared interesting information. I felt a bit tired after 7 hours, but this was a great experience. Worth seeing, no doubt. But my recommendation is not to take kids with you, it would be wearisome for them.

Bone Chapel is a must see, went on a tour with my hubby and am very impressed! The guide is super-professional, knows how to deliver interesting information and doen't get stuck on unnecessary details too much. Mind your shoes - the tour involves a lot of walking, so heels is not a good option for sure:)
