UNESCO - Kutná Hora: Historical Town Centre, Czech Republic

Kutná Hora developed as a result of the exploitation of the silver mines. In the 14th century it became a royal city endowed with monuments that symbolized its prosperity. Here on the left you can see the Church of St Barbara, a jewel of the late Gothic period.
My folder with all the images to be posted here is getting seriously crammed - gotta speed up the process! esp now that I've learned that I may be sent home from work sooner than expected...Starting with this beautiful place in Czech Republic which I've visited on a short day trip, and for Sunday Stamps and its automobiles and motor transport topic. This Bugatti Royale 41 looks so posh doesn't it? Love the colours. A set of 6 stamps 'world cars' was issued in 2012.

  1. Amazing that the Bugatti already is 80 years old!
    Nice postcard, too, thank you for sharing!

  2. To drive that old but classic Bugatti would be wonderful, but how about a new one!
    Thank you for participating this week.

  3. Love the car.
    In Spanish "bugatti" was a slang word for "car" (in the 80s). I'm afraid now nobody knows what a bugatti is.
