Day Trips

Looking to get out of the city for the day? Here’s a few places only a short distance away…

Kutná Hora & Ossuary:

This medieval silver-mining town is famous for its “bone church” – a church decorated with artistically arranged human bones – as well as for its less morbid but no-less impressive Gothic St. Barbara Cathedral. About an hour east of Prague.

Karlštejn:

Built by Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV, this fairy-tale castle is about a 45-minute train ride along the flowing Berounka river to the southwest of Prague.

Konopiště:

The castle where Archduke Franz Ferdinand resided before he was assassinated, sparking WWI. Located in Benešov, one hour south, it features the Archduke’s antler and weapon collection and a 555 acre park with rose gardens, forests, lakes & a café.

Terezín / Litoměřice:

Nazi prison camp and Jewish ghetto in a massive 18th century fortress.
