Visit Kutna hora

By Ethan Hews

The Czech Republic is not only about Prague. Rent a Luxury Minivan and set out to discover the small mining town of Kutná Hora. It is a one and half hour trip east to Central Bohemia.

This little town will thrill historians with its variety of architectural styles. Unesco declared it a Heritage Site in 1995.

When you arrive head for the Kostnice Ossuary. This amazing bone church dates back to 1278. It houses bones from abolished graves and is considered to be holy ground. Be awed in the Chapel which contains the bones of about 40000 people arranged in a weird artistic massive chandelier display.

Stroll around in the Italian Courtyard and see the Royal Mint and former Royal Residence. Then drive to St. Barbara's Church built around 1380. Admire the stunning eye-catching spires, they are masterpieces of Gothic Bohemia style. Stroll around the Old Town, it is filled with quaint cafés, restaurants, shops and museums.

See the crazy Torture Museum and then set off for a tour of the silver mines. Go deep underground to a depth of about six floors and explore these amazing medieval tunnels and caves. When you surface, wander around the Hrádek, the Czech museum of silver which offers beautiful exhibits and a shop where you can buy a souvenir to take home.

Stop for a late lunch at the famous Restaurant V Ruthardce, a cosy venue serving traditional Czech cuisine in an historical building. Try the pork cutlet in tarragon butter.

Head back to Prague for a night at the Hilton Prague Hotel, with stunning views over the city.
