FULL DAY TOUR – Excursion to the Kutná Hora

Sunday, May 28, 2017

8:30 AM - 3:30 PM - Timing is approximate 

Kutná Hora is on the UNESCO World Heritage list. The history of the town is closely linked with the mining of silver. The Kutná Hora silver mining district, abounding in silver ore, eventually became one of medieval Europe's largest sources of silver. In the late 13th century, one third of Europe's total production of silver came from Kutná Hora. The Prague groschen, one of Europe's strongest currencies of the time, began to be minted here. Thanks to its wealth, Kutná Hora became the second most important town of the Kingdom of Bohemia, and an economic, political, and cultural rival for the capital city Prague.
