St Barbara, Kutna Hora


Kutna Hora
Kutn´┐Ż 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.
