Late Gothic in the middle of the town
Aug 2019
This is a beautiful example of a Gothic building in the central part of the city, five minutes from Italian court or the main square. It is older but less visited than St. Barbara. One part of the church is nearly always under renovation. Building is a must if you really want to see original Gothic works, from pillars to vaults and some sculptures. Wooden St. James sculpture is interesting as some frescoes on the walls. Church has three naves and huge tower and is not small at all. Usually the side entrance, near the parish building is open. Small donation is not obligatory but appreciated after the visit.

Eye catching
Aug 2019 • Solo
View over the castle is breath taking. Standing out very well and it’s eye catching. Surrounded by the trees and houses and it looks amazing on the hill. I was unlucky because the day I went to Kutna Hora it was closed for restoration.

The church is partially under reconstruction but it is still open to the public. Entry is free. Interior is very nice and you can have paper guide in many different languages there. Takeing pictures without flash is allowed.

Beautiful ornate altar
Sep 2018 • Couples
This very nice smaller church in beautiful Kutna Hora is definitely worth seeing especially because of the very large ornate Gothic altar. It is worth a donation.

... but not the same opulence we had in St Barbara. Nevertheless its nice to see that the churches have outlived Socialism and Kommunsim by a long way....

Important landmark in Kutna Hora
Sep 2017 • Friends
We were fortunate to walk past on the way to the center of the town from our hotel and found the church opened. No entry fee, donations accepted. Quite a few tourists visiting, some resting their tired bodies in the pews. Beautiful decor.

The oldest church in
Jun 2017 • Friends
Kutna Hora. Many artistic masterpieces adorn the interior, dating as early as 1734 and earlier. The spire is an area landmark. Buy the multi-church ticket.

This is the tallest church in Kutna Hora and we had hoped to climb its square tower but unfortunately the church was closed when we visited and exterior has some scaffolding covering the frontage
