Czech Republic Photo Diary

Prague is the gorgeous capital of the Czech Republic. The city truly is an architecture lovers dream, with its diverse history visible through its architecture. The hilly city has a unique character about it which has made it one of Europe’s most popular tourists destinations.

Kutna Hora is in the Central Bohemian region of the Czech Republic, about an hour’s train ride out of Prague. Listed as a World Heritage site by UNESCO, Kutna Hora may seem quite dull but it attracts a large number of tourists namely because of Sedlec Ossuary. More commonly known at the ‘Bone Chapel’ the entire interior of the church is decorated entirely with human bones. It’s not as creepy, as it sounds it fact it is actually quite beautiful, much like the rest of Kutna Hora.

    • Prague was honestly one of my favourite cities. The city itself is absolutely gorgeous (they have all these street markets you should be sure to check out) and they have some of the nicest people I came across in Europe! Hope you have an amazing time!

  1. These photos are gorgeous! I really want to visit that bone church, that looks right up my alley – I’m adding that Kutna Hora to my bucket list. I’ve seen some beautiful places in Europe (Rome, Switzerland, Vatican City, the Notre Dame, Venice, Florence) and it looks like Prague really gives them a run for their money. How’s the English-speaking in Prague? Just as good as Western Europe?

    • Prague is absolutely amazing, I’ve travelled throughout Europe and it’s definitely a stand out! The Bone Chapel is definitely worth a visit, it’s hard to explain to people how beautiful it actually is because they can’t move past the fact that it’s real people’s bones decorating the church. Plus when I was there last they were doing up the rest of Kutna Hora so I’m sure it’s even more beautiful now. As for their English, it’s pretty good. Had a really easy time getting around despite knowing absolutely no Czech. The people are really helpful and lovely!
