visit to kutna hora, czech republic

Last friday my mum and me went for a day trip to the town of Kutna Hora, about 60 miles east of Prague. The day was full of discoveries, magic places and history. The originally gothic Cathedral of St. Barbara :

A short walk to the historical town centre passing the Jesuit College and a wonderful view of the church of St. James. Next to the statues there is a vineyard. We we lucky with the weather, it was a sunny day until we went back. Prague welcomed us with heavy rain and storm.

  2. Thank you for the wonderful photos of a part of the world that doesn’t get much exposure in the U.S. I just love the ceiling of the Cathedral of St. Barbara. And the bone sculpture (?) was wonderful in a macabre way.

      The historical part of Kutna Hora is so exceptional – I had to post some photos. It is a pleasure sharing not only the quilting part of my life, but also my traveling experience with my followers.

    This is one of the most fabulous places I have every visited. Once I got over the creepyness of the skeleton church I was in awe of the beauty of the City.

      Well, I had “wonky” knees before entering the bone church, but it was great experience. The town was wonderful and I shall be back.
