Create an itinerary including St Barbara's Church
Famous for its eye-catching spires and well-preserved medieval frescoes, St Barbara's Church counts among the finest Gothic structures in all of Europe, and is inscribed on the World Heritage List. Construction started in 1380 and continued for nearly three centuries, until the silver in the local mine began to run out in the 1550s. Finally completed in the 19th century, the building features ribbed vaulting and several side chapels, noted for their wall murals depicting everyday scenes from the life of a thriving medieval mining town. Take a good look at the frescoes, but don't forget to visit the cathedral's east terrace, offering panoramic views of the city.

  • Beautiful both day and night. Like every stunning cathedral, this does not disappoint. Worth the visit.

  • Biig beautiful church of St. Barbara (patroness of all miners, because Kutná Hora was mining town) which is worth visiting. The admission 160 CZK seems to me quite high, better is to buy for 220 CZK.....  more

  • Stunning, can't say anything else. Tip: buy the multiple entrance ticket for 220 CZK per person and visit 2 more impressive churches including bone church. Available at the entrance of the cathedral. This cathedral alone is worth it already, very beautiful
  • A church of stunning beauty. If you are visiting Prague for a few days, be sure to set aside one afternoon to visit Kutná Hora and this beautiful cathedral 🤩
