Fires have damaged or destroyed many of Kutna Hora's buildings in the 15th century but the town quickly rebuilt thanks to its continuing income from silver mining. In the 16th century, the silver mines were depleted and Kutna Hora's stopped growing.
Many of the other original buildings still stand with the crowning glory being the Cathedral of St Barbara, the most spectacular gothic cathedral in the Czech Republic.
