St. James‘ Church

Saint James‘ church is the oldest Kutna Hora church. Its construction started in 1330. It was originally devoted to Virgin Mary, that’s why it was also called „Upper“, because there was another Virgin Mary’s church in the town as well. Later it was re-devoted to St. James  the Apostle, but still called „High church“ due to its appearance. Now you can feel the spiritual atmosphere when visiting  this church and calm down when breathing the silent air.
