KUTNA HORA

The trip to Kutna Hora from Prague was by train, taking about one hour to travel the 120 km. The train arrives at Kutna Hora main station, with a transfer to local train to travel the 4 km to Kutna Hora Mesto. I understand there is a bus if i missed the local train. The trip can be done has a day trip , but i was staying overnight in hotel.----Kutna Hora is a medieval city in Central Bohemia Czech Republic. It is called the "National Treasure", silver was found here in the 10th century. The town began with a Sedec Abbey in 1142 AD, the first Cistercian Monastery in Bohemia.--- The Prague Groshen , a silver coin was minted here between 1300 and 1548 AD.-----I visited the Cathedral of St. Barbara a lovely Late Gothic style cathedral.----An interesting place is the Sediec Ossury in the Chapel of All Saints, just a little way from the city centre. This church is famous has the place of Human Bones. Human bones have been made into designs , well worth a visit. ( if on a daytrip by train the Ossury is first stop from Kutna Hora main station ).---- The city centre has good tourist signs.--- The Tourist Office is in Palaciceho Nam.

The Gothic Stone Fountain in Kutna Hora is fascinating. I've never seen a fountain like it. The bones in the Ossuary reminded me of the Cathedral in Otranto, Italy where they have the bones of something like 500 martyrs displayed in glass cases behind an altar. It's a bit of a shock to see it.

Interesting to hear about Otranto .
