Description

One of the most popular tourist sites in the Czech Republic, this six hour round-trip guided tour takes you through lush Bohemian countryside, and to the once-mighty town of Kutná Hora. The gruesome highlight is undoubtedly the chapel at Kutná Hora, which is made of human bones. Yup, a chapel. Made of human bones.

The Old Town of Kutná Hora is a gorgeous UNESCO World Heritage site. At one point Kutná Hora's riches rivaled Prague's thanks to its silver mines. This guided tour will give you a better understanding of the history of Bohemia, and will also show you the most artfully arranged human bones you'll ever see.

Located beneath the Cemetery Church of All Saints, the Sedlec Ossuary is a chilling display of the skeletal fragments of 40,000-70,000 people. Let your tour guide explain how it came to be.

All Saints was a 13th century church that ran out of grave space but it wasn’t until 1870 that František Rint got creative with its contents. Here stands a chandelier made of every bone of the human body, over there, a column of skulls, and over there a coat of arms made of - what else? - arms.

Afterwards you'll board the train back to Prague, in touch with the lush countryside, and the all-too fleeting nature of our own existence. Make sure to treat yourself to carpe the rest of your diem when you make it back to Prague. Life's too short for naps.

It was convenient and easy doing the tour. We followed our Guide Thomas to the train station. All tickets were already taken care of. We had a pleasant ride made one simple switch to another train and then arrived at Kutna Hora. Thomas gave us history of the area and Prague before a short walk to the bone chapel. Then on to the St. Barbara Cathedral (very beautiful) walked to nice restaurant. Had a wonderful lunch as a group. Great beer & schnitzel. Walked down the cobble stone streets beautiful landscape, back to the train. It was so nice to get out of the city. Thank you Thomas for your informative and pleasant tour. I definitely recommend this tour!

It was very interesting! The tour guide is highly knowledgeable and very organized. The only thing I would recommend is assign lanyards for participants or have the guide hold a sign, flag or umbrella because with all the walking it could be quite easy to get separated, especially at the start when you didn’t know anyone else at the tour yet.
