Last week I shared my Top 10 Reasons to Visit Prague. This wonderful city is so full of charm you may never want to leave.

However, while visiting Prague you really should leave town for a day or two in order to see some of the surrounding attractions.

Kutna Hora

The little hill town of Kutna Hora is about an hour train ride out of Prague. It is known for several striking historical sights including some lavish cathedrals.

Cathedral of Saint Barbara – You can see the Saint Barbara’s Cathedral perched high on the hill next to the Jesuit College from many places around Old Town Kutna Hora.

A towering gothic church named after the patron saint of miners. This cathedral makes a stunning impact inside and out. It’s worth walking all the way around the cathedral to see it from every angle, then strolling through its halls.

Sedlec Ossuary (Bone Church) – The other big attraction in Kutna Hora is actually a very small building in a cemetery. After a saint sprinkled the ground with soil from the holy land, the cemetery became a popular burial site.

Several decades later, there were so many bodies in the cemetery, that many were unmarked and forever unknown.

The inside of the ossuary is decorated with real human bones from 40,000 unknown bodies buried in the yard.

There are varied stories on who started this eerie interior design. Some say monks began the tradition by stacking excess bones in pyramids, and some give the credit to a woodcarver in the late 1800s.

Either way, Sedlec Ossuary is worth a visit!

Cesky Krumlov

A couple hours south of Prague is the serene village of Cesky Krumlov. We were able to take a guided tour from Prague to Cesky Krumlov with the company Think Prague.

This dazzling little town was built into the curve of a river below a towering castle on a cliff. It is the quintessential fairytale hamlet.

Take a tour of the castle. Climb the castle tower for sweeping views for the village and hills beyond.

The castle doesn’t allow photography on the inside, but it is worth taking the tour just to see the amusing ballroom.

Yet the outside of the castle does not disappoint!
