    Itinerary
    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: The Cemetery Church of All Saints with the Ossuary, Zamecka, Kutna Hora 284 03 Czech Republic

    Set out to explore this historic city on foot, starting by the Sedlec Ossuary. Learn 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.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Historic Centre of Kutna Hora, Kutna Hora Czech Republic

    Next, head for Kutná’s UNESCO-listed Old Town, a treasure chest of medieval architecture.

    Duration: 1 hour 20 minutes

    Stop At: St Barbara's Cathedral, Barborska Street, Kutna Hora 284 01 Czech Republic

    Visit the magnificent Gothic Church of St Barbara and marvel at its echoing interior, replete with frescoes that show medieval miners. As you walk round, hear how the church was dedicated to St Barbara, the patron saint of miners, and was part of Kutná’s efforts to rival Prague.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Hradek, the Little Castle, Kutna Hora Czech Republic

    After, delve further into the romantic streets and squares, passing gems such as the Italian Court — the former Royal Mint — and the fortified Hrádek palace.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Plague Column of the Virgin Mary Immaculate, Kutna Hora Czech Republic

    Make a brief stop for lunch (own expense), and then check out more Kutná highlights, including the Knight’s Hall and richly carved Plague Column, before catching your return bus.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Pass By: Old Town Hall with Astronomical Clock, StaromEstske NamEsti 1/3, Prague 110 00 Czech Republic

    Your tour ends back in central Prague, when you say goodbye to your guide at the station.

    I would take the subway from IPPavlova to the train station (hlavni nadrazi line C). The meeting point is about a 5 minute walk

    We actually took the train. We walked to the train station boarded and made the transfer to the local train that shuttled us to Kutna Hora and back to the main line. Tickets for the Basilica and Ossuary were included.
