Kuntá Hora is a historic city with a turbulent past. In the 14th-century the city became a hotspot for mining after silver ore was discovered in the surrounding hills. King Wenceslas II even established Kuntá Hora as the seat of his royal court. After the silver dried up and the city was then ravaged by the Thirty Years War and a terrible fire, it declined in popularity somewhat. Today, the town center - with the Church of St. Barbara and the Cathedral of Our Lady at Sedlec - holds UNESCO status. The Sedlec Ossuary is another intriguing feature, containing a macabre chapel lined with the skeletons of 40,000 people! There is an hourly train from Prague Central Station to Kutna Hora Hlavni Nadrazi. From here you can walk into the city centre or change to another short train to get you to Kutna Hora Mesto which is closer to the city centre. Photo Credits: Alice Denysenko on Unsplash
