Today I have two more Czech UNESCO sites from this great series of postcards featuring Czech UNESCO sites. Both of them come from Ondrej in Prague:

UNESCO-kutna-hora

First is Kutna Hora, an important town from the medieval Czech Kingdom. Kutna Hora has been on the UNESCO list since 1995. Here there were large silver mines and the Royal Mint (lower left picture). In the large picture you can see the Church of St. Barbara, the patron Saint of Miners (church in background, with the pointy roof).

UNESCO-litomysl

Next is the castle of Litomysl. This castle dates from the 16th century Renaissance period. Litomysl was listed on the UNESCO list in 1999. Ondrej writes that each year there is an opera festival in the town of Litomysl because it is the birthplace of Czech composer Bedrich Smetana.

Ondrej used some nice stamps on the cards, too:

CZECH-REPUBLIC-horns CZECH-REPUBLIC-piranesi

Thanks, Ondrej!
