This small, but silver rich town was trying to compete with Prague and have the better cathedral. But their silver mine went dry and it took another 400 years to finish it.

As beautiful as any church in Prague itself, this cathedral really took our breath away. It's dedicated to Saint Barbara, who is the patron saint of miners - very appropriate in this former silver-mining town. Sited on a hillside overlooking the town of Kutna Hora...More

This is a very cool cathedral which isn't really a cathedral! No bishop! So, it is amazing inside. Beautiful stained glass. Be sure to climb to the second floor...it isn't that bad...and view the insides of the pipe organ and walk out on the balcony....More

Large cathedral with many beautiful altars including many in side chapels. Unusual "tent| roof, like Denver airport.

Definitely visit if you are in Kutna Hora. Hit it at golden hour and you’ll get amazing photos. We didn’t see the inside, but I’d imagine it’s gorgeous. Cobblestone makes it a little difficult for strollers.

This may be the most attractive Gothic cathedral I have ever visited. The stained glass is magnificent and there is beauty everywhere one looks. Another aspect which endeared it to me is that it is quite small and I did not leave exhausted,

St. Barbara cathedral was stunning. The buttresses stand so strong to hold up this amazing cathedral. Their beauty from outside as well as views of them from the upper level were impressive. The stained glass murals were stunning to stand and soak in their beauty...More

Yes, if you are staying in a hotel in Sedlec the concierge should know what transportation you can take going to Prague. Perhaps a rent a car is the best way as I did not see any buses when I was there.
