Our first stop on the way to Kutna Hora is Kolin, a town on the banks of the Labe River. Even though its medieval center around the town square is well preserved and its 16th century synagogue was recently renovated and opened to the public, Kolin is unjustly not on the itinerary of most visitors to this country.

Kutna Hora once was the second most important town in Bohemia (after Prague) because of its rich silver ore deposits. A UNESCO listed protected town, it has a well preserved medieval core with more than 300 national heritage sites, the most famous of which is St. Barbora Cathedral, the Royal Mint and an ossuary where a vast number of human bones were used by a Cistercian monk to create works of art: pyramids topped by a crown, candle-holders and monstrances.

A 25 mile drive will take us to Cesky Sternberk, a fairy tale castle perched on a cliff overlooking the valley of the Sazava River. We can partake in a guided tour of the castle or just enjoy the spectacular view of the valley. In spite of the tumultuous history of this part of Europe and all political upheavals, this castle has not changed hands for some 700 years!
