Witnesses to History by Justes Kemper

Ahoj! Hello!

Another day in Prague, and what a day it turned out to be! On this 1st of June, we became witnesses to history. The Kunta Hora day trip really proved to be something special. We visited the bone church which is home to the bones of revolutionaries, victims of the Black Plague, and fallen warriors of the Hussite War. This was incredible and became an eye-opening experience. All those deaths shared one common thing, sacrifice. After taking in the beauty and the meaning of the Bone Church, we continued on to the mines. Now this, was a surprise to me. I was not mentally or physically prepared for the lack of height or width in these mines. I think I could speak for all of us when I say it was a struggle. However, this experience did not come without merit. The history of the mines was intriguing.

Although these unreal experiences were amazing, they could not surpass the food I indulged in today. The roasted duck I had for lunch, and the flank steak I had for dinner was delicious and quite likely the highlights of my day. I am pleased to say that on a scale of 1 – 2, I would rate Kutna Hora a solid 2. I am loving every bit of the cultural experience and cannot wait for the days to come!
