Kutna Hora Bus Day Trip 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: Ossuary / The Cemetery Church, Zamecka 279, 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.

Andy was very good and very nice,he knows is material very very Well! It was a great day spent at hutna hora
Overall a very good tour. Knowledgeable (Canadian) guide although a little over the top at times! Bone chapel a little creepy but worth the visit as so unusual. Recommended.
The Sedlec Ossuary is amazing, testament to human artistry even though some might find it macabre. Loved our time there.The town of Kutna Hora is lovely, especially St Barbara's Cathedral which is beautiful. Lunch at Dačický was really nice, the beer and food were good, especially the wild boar goulash which I had. Portions were generous and the quality was good.The tour guide Andy was great - very knowledgable and a fun guy to listen to, like his particular take on history and his style of telling stories.
The bus was very crowded with a group of Italian speaking clients. The English speaking were put at the back of the bus but unfortunately we wouldn't all fit so some were at the front so we could not hear our English speaking guide and could not undertstand the Italian. We were all rather forced into having lunch at a particular restaurant whether we wanted it or not which many of the clients found rather distastful. It was a long day as we went to a winery and two clients were lost so I guess we were late leaving. If I was to return I would find our own way to Kutna Hora. It was my second time there, only because I had a young adult grandson with me.
This was a long day but seeing the bone church was worth it!
Excellent!!! Im so glad i took the opportunity to see another side of the Czech Republic!!!
Excellent. Our guide Tijo was personable and spoke excellent English. I had thought we would have free time to explore, but the guide stayed with the group and took us to all the various sights. That was fine. Lunch was good and we enjoyed every stop. The church with the bone ossuary far exceeded expectations, as did St. Barbara's and the Italian court that had previously been the location of the mint. The town itself was quite atmospheric and charming. There were fantastic photo ops and it was a wonderful day. Highly recommended!!!
