Kutná Hora is famous for Sedlec Ossuary (known as The Church of Bones) – a small Roman Catholic chapel, located beneath the Cemetery Church of All Saints in Sedlec, a suburb of Kutná Hora. The ossuary is estimated to contain the skeletons of between 40,000 and 70,000 people, whose bones have, in many cases, been artistically arranged to form decorations and furnishings for the chapel. The ossuary is among the most visited tourist attractions of the Czech Republic – attracting over 200,000 visitors annually.
Most visitors arrive by train to Kutná Hora main station and then walk for 10 minutes to Sedlec. It’s then 35-45 minutes walk to Kutná Hora town centre. The best option is to buy a ticket through to Kutná Hora město – jump off the train at the main station and onto the small local service that also stops in Kutná Hora – Sedlec (you have to press a small red button in the carriage to tell the driver to stop!), visit the church then back on the next train to Kutná Hora město.
Kutná Hora is a lovely small town to walk around. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from but we decided on V Ruthardce as it looked good and had a nice garden.
We ordered Kozel dark beers (28Kc for 05l), a cheeseburger (165Kc) and some chicken wings with bread (125Kc).
Both were pretty good for the price.
One wasp flew by me – I’m guessing there would be more around by late summer and I’d need to take my electronic fly zapping racket.
I’d definitely recommend a visit if you find yourself in Kutná Hora.
