Kutná Hora, Part 1

After Zámek Žleby, we stopped by Kutná Hora for a couple hours. Its historic town center, the Church of St Barbara and the Cathedral of Our Lady at Sedlec are on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Kutná Hora is one of the most popular day trips for tourists from Prague and there were a lot around. The
St. Barbara Church lends itself to typical postcard photos and the interior has all kinds of neat details, carvings, paintings, statues, stained glass etc.

The blog was very interesting. It was nice reading about your trip to Kutna Hora. Both the churches are wonderful and I am glad that are listed in the UNESCO World Heritage List. The images you displayed are beautiful.
