St. Barbara's Cathedral, Kutná Hora, Czech Republic

St. Barbara's Cathedral dominates Kutná Hora from a hill overlooking the city. A miner's chapel had occupied the site for nearly a century, then in 1388 the miners had a big idea and an enormous project to build this Gothic masterpiece dedicated to St. Barbara, the patron saint of miners, began. The work continued, on and off depending of the fortunes of the silver mines, until 1905 when it was finally deemed complete and the cathedral was consecrated.
