Discovering hidden Czech gem of Kutna Hora

Only about an hour away from Prague lies a place I haven't heard about until visiting it. From my first day in Czech republic people were discussing something about monastery, so beautiful it's a must see. I'm not a big fan of such things, so my interest to go wasn't very deep. But Kutna Hora, the small town they were talking about turned out to be much more then that.

It all started with us exiting the train station and heading towards the town by foot, firstly passing the factory of Phillip Morris cigarettes, also accompanied by tobacco museum. 

Not much further lied one of the most interesting sights, so called Bone church, which's chapel decoration was, as the name itself says, mostly designed by bones. From bone chandelier, to whole pyramids of bones and with skulls decorating arches it's certainly one kind of a sight.

However, our attention was just as caught by a Lego museum we encounter on the way and soon after we were heading to the center.

The old town was certainly a charmer. Colourful houses with pargeting surrounding squares and small streets led us up hill, until we spot a wonderful sight of the cathedral and former jesuit college crowning the city. On the stone path leading there you were accompanied by numerous detailed statue and were able to admire the view of the landscape.

The jesuit collage is now transformed into vivid modern gallery with some interesting exhibits down the ground level corridor that you can admire for free, a lovely coffee shop with outdoor sitting and our definite favourite, ''urban jungle'', triangular mirror plated corridor, with green plants growing from wooden floors and hanging from walls and panoramic window over the valley.

We finally made it to the famous St. Barbara's church, the UNESCO heritage cathedral in majestic gothic style with detailed columns and arches. Maybe the spectacular view of it didn't impress us that much, as all the other beauties of the city were still sinking in.
