Enjoy a drive through Bohemia on full-day private tour from Prague. See the Sedlec Monastery and the Church of St. Jacob, the fairytale Žleby Palace, and UNESCO-listed Kutná Hora, as you discover some of the highlights that lie beyond the Czech capital.
What to Expect
Enjoy a 70-minute drive from Prague to Sedlec through the countryside of Bohemia as you embark on this full-day private tour.
Visit Sedlec Monastery, one of the most important religious institutions in Bohemia. The appearance of the chapel today is the result of Baroque modifications made by Jan Blazej Santini. It is decorated entirely with human bones, modified by the wood carver František Rint.
The next stop is the Church of St. Jacob, located in the village of Jakub. This important building dates from the 12th century, and has been classified a national cultural monument.
Continue on to Žleby Palace, a Gothic castle from 1289. It was rebuilt in 1849-1868 in the English style. Admire the magnificent collections of art objects, historical weapons and arms, antiques, glassware, china and pottery, rare stained glass, paintings, fabrics, and furniture from the Renaissance to the 20th century.
For lunch, you’ll visit the U Kosů pub to enjoy fine Czech cuisine.
On the drive back to Prague, you’ll stop to explore the city of Kutná Hora, listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. As you’ll see, this city’s history was significantly influenced by silver mining.
