Kutna Hora, Czech Republic.

Kutna Hora, Czech Republic: On our way back form Poland we made a day trip to Kutna Hora (about an hour from Prague but it took us almost 2 since driving here is so confusing!). There were a few top tourist stops in this town that we didn't want to miss:
^^St. Barbara's Cathedral was a must-see. This cathedral is known for their original fresco paintings inside of the nave of the cathedral, but the outside was just as impressive.^^
^^View from St. Barbara's Cathedral.^^
 ^^Next stop: Sedlec Ossuary. This is a small Roman Catholic chapel that contains the skeletons of approximately 40,000 people. The bones are a bit disturbing but on a whole I found it really fascinating.^^
^^Chandelier of bones.^^
^^Schwarzenber coat-of-arms made with bones.^^
^^One of the many cute roads in Kutna Hora.^^
^^This was actually at our hotel last night in Poland but these tulip trees are all over the place. I'm dying!^^

We walked around the tiny brick roads and discovered a few shops and ate a traditional Czech lunch (beef goulash served in a bread bowl). Now that we're back in Prague we'll be taking the night easy - tomorrow we'll explore the castles and churches that Old Town Prague has to offer.
