Travel Diary: Kutna Hora

                        Even the sign at the train station is eerie!
                                  Finally at the Bone Church!
                               Tombs surrounding the church
                                     First glimpse....

                            No Touching! Why would you anyway??
Cathedral of our Assumption of the Lady and St. John the Baptist (World UNESCO Heritage Site)

           I can't even count how many skeletons, bones, skulls....etc. I've seen today!
                                 There's a second floor....
                                        Back to Prague
                         Really??? At least learn how to spell!
                              Rebels crossing the train tracks! lol

Kutna Hora is a popular day trip from Prague as it only takes about an hour. We departed from Praha Masarykovo Nadirazi (smaller local train station near Republic Square). The train station is old and filled with locals that don't speak English, so you better know which train you're taking or else you will be running around to find someone to help you. We had that problem...Most trains to Kutna Hora h.l.n (closest train station to the Bone Church) require you to transfer at Kolin, which we had to do; hence the confusion in Prague. Kutna Mesto is the main station in Kutna, but it's quite far from the Bone Church, which is the only reason we decided to go. Once you get to Kutna Hora, the walk to the Bone Church or Kostnice Ossuary is only a 10 minute walk. We also went to the Cathedral of Assumption of Our Lady and St. John the Baptist (World UNESCO Heritage Site) since it was on our way back to the train station. Both sites are a great representation of Bohemian Gothic architecture. The Bone Church, I'm sure to most, was eerie and fascinating at the same time. I think it's definitely worth the trip if you have the time.
