Near the Church of 'Our Lady before Tyn' in the city-center.
Looking to the St. Nicholas cathedral...
The medieval town of Kutná Hora is a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site which gained huge wealth thanks to its prosperous silver mines, and became the second most important town in the Kingdom of Bohemia, after Prague. A uniquely amazing sight is the baroque ossuary in nearby Sedlec, decorated with the bones of some 40,000 people. The decorations even include a human bone chandelier.

Charles Bridge by night..rare sight to capture hardly any tourists (mid-Jan.)

Steps towards the Hradcany castle area.
