Kostel Sv. Jakuba (Church of Saint Jacob)
You can not miss the Church of Saint Jacob in Kutná Hora. It was built on a higher place and its dominance is even magnified by its 85 metres high tower. Originally it had to have two towers, but this idea was abandoned because of not suitable terrain. It is a pity, Kutná Hora could have been second Pisa. Building was constructed on the costs of local mining enterpreneurs and it was finished in 1420, just to be burned down by Hussites and wait 40 years for reconstruction. Every hour a guard from Jacobian tower cried out: „Dear God, please protect Kutná Hora.“ Today, only tower bells remind this custom.
