Kutn� Hora developed as a result of the exploitation of the silver mines. In the 14 it became a

royal city endowed with monuments that symbolized its prosperity. The Church of St Barbara, a jewel of

the late Gothic period, and the Cathedral of Our Lady at Sedlec, which was restored in line with the

Baroque taste of the early 18, were to influence the architecture of central Europe. These

masterpieces today form part of a well – preserved medieval urban fabric with some particularly fine private

dwellings.
