There were only 5 people in our tour group which was great.Our guide was a marvellous lady called Veronika who showed real passion and immense knowledge throughout the tour. She spoke both Italian and English perfectly and showed us the best sights of Kutna Hora. We really enjoyed it.I cannot recommend Veronika enough!

It’s definitely worth getting a guide for the castle. Especially one like Hana who was exceptional and you can see how passionate she is. Wish they gave us headphones as promised so we wouldn’t miss a word she was saying…
