The highlight of the Czech Museum of Silver is the tour in the medieval silver mines 30 meters underground! At lowest 120cm and at narrowest 40cm it's no tour for claustrophobic people, although I did think that the tour wasn't in as harsh conditions as...More

There are two tours in one. Coin makers' activities are very interesting. The royal palace had its place in history. State visits, signing Decrees, important decisions. Gothic and renaissance jewel.

Kutna Hora has an important silver mining history hundreds of years old. The 1.5 hour tour is a must, however not recommended to people with claustrophobia, obesity or anxiety as there is a steep climb down deep into the mining shaft and then 250 meters...More
