Location: Kutna Hora

About 70 kilometres (43 miles) east of Prague is the little town of Kutná Hora in Central Bohemia. Even though it’s a small town now, it formerly rivalled even the Golden City. Taking a look at modern-day Prague, this may be hard to believe, yet it was once the case.

Kutná Hora owed its position and prosperity to the silver mines that had been constructed there in the Middle Ages. At the end of the 13th century, about one third of all silver produced in Europe originated from this region. Even though its population has dropped to around 20,000 in recent years, the town remains a popular tourist destination and makes for a wonderful day excursion from Prague.
