The interior painting as well as the exterior architecture is truly amazing. Not as good as the st. Vitus Cathedral in Prague but still a nice building that worth a visit. The best scene would be seeing the whole Kutna Hora from the backyard of the cathedral

The cathedral is beautiful and has lots of history as most of the places here do, there is some stunning original arts on the wall which to me was the best bit and some states to do with the wealth of Kutna Hora. You are allowed to take pictures but with no flash, but there is plenty of light in... More

This UNESCO-listed cathedral is absolutely remarkable and well worth a visit. The unique design of this gothic cathedral has a three-tent roof and intricate flying buttresses. This church was named after the patron saint of miners, St. Barbara. It is possible to visit St. Barbara's, as well as the Sedlec Ossuary, as part of a day tour from Prague.

It's a refreshing change from normal gothic cathedral or the extreme baroque cathedral/churches. A must-go in Kutna Hora

A day trip from Prague will see you there by train in about 50 minutes or so. You can walk from the station in about 45 minutes if your up for it. A pleasant stroll mainly flat. A little up hill on arrival for the last 40 minutes or so. Taxis and touristy buses also available. The cathedral is stunning... More

Beautiful dating back to the 1400s. Was at one time Protestant but converted by Jesuits after Catholic Church was restored. Is still being developed and can contribute to completion of the church. The church has an old part and a newer part which can be seen by the difference in the color of the stone.

Brilliant architecture worth seeing! Very windy though. Both great inside and outside. Is located closely to GASK which is waste of time.

Inside and out, it's beautiful. It's worth the trip out from Prague. Make sure you take a look over the side of the gardens it's situated, you'll be in for a treat
