Silver mines and art immortal: The town of Kutná Hora, the Sedlec Ossuary, GASK and the Čáslav Municipal Museum

Kutná Hora, nowadays one of twenty-one UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the Czech Republic, has played an important role in Czech history since the Middle Ages. Much of Kutná Hora’s success can be attributed to its deposits of silver ore, which set the town on a rocketing path towards wealth, power and importance.

Visit a late Gothic gem, the Cathedral of St. Barbara (the patron saint of miners), and walk on the cobbled streets of this charming medieval town. Then, let yourself feel astonished by the very unusual decorations of the local Sedlec Ossuary. Connections between the Baroque and the modern, as well as an understanding of the ‘genius loci’ of Kutná Hora, will become palpable after a visit to GASK, a progressive gallery of contemporary art. Touring one of the oldest regional museums in the Czech Republic, the Čáslav Municipal Museum and Library, will crown our Kutná Hora museum excursion.
