...Nice views of one of the three main historical cities to visit in the Czech Republic - Prague, Cesky Krumlov and Kutná Hora... an interesting charming old medieval town not so far from Prague.... Thanks a lot Andrene for one more great UNESCO site!!  (✿◠‿◠)

Kutná Hora was the richest and the most significant town of Medieval Bohemia. Rich silver deposits were discovered in its vicinity in the 13th century and they helped win fame and glory for the Kingdom of Bohemia.

The well-known Prague groschen - the currency of Europe - was minted here too.

At both ends of the town there are some beautiful buildings, and the higher points of the town are home to restored older architecture, with Medieval, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque buildings.

Since 1995 the city center has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
