Day Trip to Kutná Hora by bus from Prague
This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Old Town Square, Staroměstské nám., 110 00 Praha 1-Staré Město, Czechia
Meet your guide in central Prague and make your way to the main bus station (5-10 min walking distance from the meeting point in Old Town Square). Then, board the private bus for Kutná Hora, the Czech Republic’s ‘City of Silver’ — a 13th-century silver mining town in central Bohemia that competed with Prague for power and riches in the Middle Ages.
Duration: 15 minutes
Stop At: The Cemetery Church of All Saints with the Ossuary, Zamecka, Kutna Hora 284 03 Czech Republic
Admire the Bohemian countryside, arrive in Kutná Hora and head for your first stop, the Sedlec Ossuary. On the way, hear more about Kutná’s history and how the town grew after the establishment of the Sedlec Monastery, a sanctuary for Cistercian monks, in the 12th century. Head inside the Sedlec Ossuary and gape at the macabre, bone-made interior. Inspect the chandelier and furnishings made entirely from human bones, and hear how the interior contains the skeletons of around 40,000 people. As you take in the bone creations, you’ll understand completely why the ossuary draws flocks of visitors.

Our guide Andrea was fun and full of information which she gave us in stories!! She made us feel comfortable and I thoroughly enjoyed the trip!!
So our guide Katerina was excellent, she did her masters on Kuntna Hora so she knew all the things. We left a bit late because the group was so large and when we finally got to the ossuary we only had 20, maybe 25 minutes to look around, use the bathroom, and check out the local shops. I could’ve easily used double that time. The restaurant they took us to was nice, and we did get back a bit late but the bus was nice as well. Overall this was my favorite of the 3 tours I had booked while in Prague.
The guide Ian the Brazilian tour guide was amazing : I give him five stars, if you have enough time in Prague do it if not spend your time in Prague
