Prague - Kutná Hora (and Back) By Train

Arriving in Kutná Hora
Kutná Hora Train Station
Trains for Kutná Hora leave the Prague main train station (hlavní nádraží) every two hours in the morning and early afternoon, and every hour starting at 3 p.m. (in case you want to spend the night in Kutná Hora). The trip takes about an hour and costs around 100 CZK/person one way.

The main Kutná Hora train station (Kutná Hora hl.n.) is not within practical walking distance from the city center (about 4 km/2.5 miles), so you'll want to transfer to a local train after you arrive in Kutná Hora. There's always one connecting with the arriving Prague train and you'll have about five minutes to transfer. When buying your train ticket in Prague, make sure you buy one for Kutná Hora město (město = town), not Kutná Hora hl.n., so you're covered all the way into town and don't have to buy an extra ticket on the local train. The ride into town takes six minutes.

Kutná Hora Train StationIf you miss your connection, you can also take a local bus (no. 1 and 7) into town. There's usually a bus leaving within 15 minutes after the Prague train arrives. The bus stop is right in front of the station, the ride takes 20 minutes and costs 24 CZK. Get off at the bus station (autobusové nádraží) or the stop after the bus station (centrum).


A private 8-passenger minivan (Tourist Bus) runs between the Kutná Hora train station, Sedlec Ossuary and Church of St. Barbara in town. The ride costs 35 CZK. You can always see if one is waiting at the station when you arrive. It leaves as soon as at least three people get on.

Going to Sedlec First?

Both the local train and bus (and the minivan) pass through the Sedlec suburb, so you can get off there (1st stop by train, 2nd stop by bus) and visit the Ossuary and the UNESCO-listed Cathedral of Our Lady on your way into town. Read our Sedlec Ossuary page for more information on how to get to and from Sedlec.

Kutná Hora Commuter TrainLeaving Kutná Hora

If you have a return train ticket from Kutná Hora město, you'll catch your train from there. Again, you'll be transferring to the Prague express train at the main train station. You can also get to the main station by bus no. 1 or 7. They run every 30 minutes on working days (bus 1) and hourly on weekends (bus 7) and you can catch one at the bus station or the Centrum stop. The ride takes about 20 minutes. The irregular Kutná Hora Tourist Bus is also an option if you are a little flexible on time.


Prague - Kutná Hora (and Back) By Bus


Direct buses leave the Praha-Háje bus stop (metro line C, station Háje) every hour throughout the day and the trip takes 1 hour 40 minutes. The price is around 70 CZK/person. There is a faster bus leaving the Florenc bus station in the morning that takes 1 hour 25 minutes. The nice thing about taking a bus is that you will be dropped off right in the Kutná Hora city center. You can get off at the very last stop (bus station) or the stop before that (centrum), which is the third Kutná Hora stop. The stops are three minutes apart and both are central enough. You can catch a bus going back to Prague from the same locations. There are no lavatories on the buses.
