    Kutna Hora

    What we'll do
    We take a walk to admire Kutna Hora’s Old Town and its stunning Cathedral of St Barbara . This church is a truly magnificent mixture of Gothic and Baroque styles. Little out of the city center we will find the Sedlec Ossuary . You will have the chance to see for yourself the human bones that have been used in artful decoration of the chapel as you descend underground.


    About Kutna Hora
    Kutna Hora city started to grow around a Cistercian monastery in the 12th century. The fame and wealth of the city came with silver mining a century later. Kutna Hora grew rapidly to be the second biggest city after Prague in the area. The prosperity of the medieval community can be seen in the churches that were built. The most famous of them is the Cathedral of St Barbara, the patron saint of miners.

    In the outskirts of Kutna Hora is the chilling Sedlec Ossuary famous for its human bones. This is a Roman Catholic chapel in the cemetery of the Church of All Saints. In early 16 century mass graves were exhumed and more than 40 000 bones were used to decorate the chapel. This tradition of using skulls and bones, real or not, in decoration was widespread in late medieval Europe. The purpose was largely symbolic, a reminder of the inevitability of death.

  • Stop 2: Olomouc Old Town

    We will explore Olomouc's Old Town, its Baroque architecture, visit the UNESCO listed Holy Trinity Column, admire the famous Astronomical Clock, and then sit down for a delicious lunch.

    Olomouc Old Town

    What we'll do

    We will explore the Old Town with its stunning buildings in different styles (mainly Renaissance and Baroque), two main squares (Upper and Lower), and impressive town hall with the unique Astronomical Clock on one of its walls. If we are lucky, we can even witness the small show the clock makes. But the real highlight of Olomouc is the UNESCO-listed Holy Trinity Column from the early 18th century the largest structure of that kind. After exploring Olomouc and its attractions, it’s time for lunch before heading to the next destination.


    About Olomouc Old Town

    Olomouc Old Town, nestled in the heart of the Czech Republic, is a treasure trove of history and architectural wonders. With roots dating back to the 10th century, Olomouc has played a pivotal role in Central European history. The town's rich history is reflected in its well-preserved medieval and Baroque architecture, showcasing a blend of Gothic cathedrals, Renaissance palaces, and charming cobblestone streets.

    The centerpiece of Olomouc Old Town is the Holy Trinity Column, a UNESCO World Heritage site and a prime example of Baroque artistry. This impressive monument, erected in the early 18th century, symbolizes the city's resilience against past plagues and wars. Another highlight is the Astronomical Clock, a masterpiece with intricate carvings and a captivating hourly show. It was crafted in the 15th century and rebuilt in the 1950s in the Socialist Realism style.


    Olomouc Old Town invites travelers to step back in time, immersing themselves in centuries of history while marveling at the beauty of its well-preserved landmarks.

No better way to travel from Prague to Krakow

My sister and I opted to take a scenic van tour from Prague to Krakow instead of taking a bus, and we are so extremely happy we did! Our tour guides were absolutely fantastic and we were blown away by how knowledgeable they were on the history of each town we visited.

So many cool places along the way from Prague to Krakow

I am really happy that I took this option. We had the best guide who shared a lot of stories of local life and made so many jokes that still make me laugh when I remember them. My highlight was visiting the Bone Church in Kutna Hora - you cannot find something like that anywhere else!

Wonderful experience!

This tour was well worth the time. As newcomers to Central Europe, my friend and I were very excited at every stop of this tour. Each site was unique and interesting. Our fearless leader Martin was fun, factual, and friendly and made the trip from Prague to Krakow not just a travel day but a vacation day.
