$1=27.410, Aug 14, 2003

Kutna Hora, 70km from Praha, a medieval, silver-mining town that once rivaled Prague in importance. A small picturesque town with many examples of Gothic & Baroque architecture it was added to UNESCO's register of World Cultural & Natural Heritage Sites in 1996.

The main attractions are the Ossuary 'Bone Church' and the Cathedral of St Barbara but there are several other sights well worth seeing.

Most people visit Kutna Hora on a day trip from Praha. However, if you have the time it's a pleasant town to stay in. Though it gets a lots of visitors, it's not over-run, most leave late afternoon. Accommodation options are generally better value than in Prague.

Monday is not a good day for a day trip - the Cathedral is closed.
