Day 3

Today, depart on a half-day excursion to Kutna Hora, a medieval town located to the east of Prague and now designated a world heritage site, protected by UNESCO.

During the Middle Ages the discovery of huge deposits of silver transformed Kutná Hora into the most important city in the Kingdom of Bohemia after Prague. The wealth and prosperity that flowed from the mines led to a rich architectural development of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque buildings. And it is through visiting the most important buildings on the tour that we learn of the history of the town. Beautiful churches such as St. Barbara's Cathedral and elegant palaces like the Italian Court were constructed, where the Royal Mint was sited and produced coins for the whole kingdom. And to house the newly wealthy citizens, impressive burgher houses were built throughout the 15th century.
