St. Barbara's Cathedral near Kutna Hora in the Czech Republic is well worth a visit. Kutna Hora was once a very prosperous town, made wealthy by the silver that was mined in the region, and St. Barbara was considered a patron saint of miners.
Construction of the church began in 1388 but it was not completed until the early years of the twentieth century.
The church is a stunning architectural masterpiece that was begun in the Gothic style, with Baroque influences added later. The interior of the cathedral is filled beautifully rendered paintings and ornate, gilded carvings.
The stained glass windows in the church are among the most beautiful to be seen anywhere.
