The Silver mines was an absolute favorite attraction for my 9 and 6 year old! It was active, interesting, exciting and educational. The guide was so informative and we loved putting on the mining clothes, hardhat and carrying the big light.
The famous Bone Church is full of ornate macabre sculpures arranged exclusively from human bones. I highly recommend you to seeing it. It's not a common tourist attraction because it's a bit off the beaten path, but this just adds to the authenticity of the experience. The one thing that surprised me was how small the church itself is. It consists of a wide decorated stairway leading down to one room. It surprised me that the bones of 40,000. This trip to Kutna Hora is a must!
