Long Description:

Gothic Church of Virgin Mary Na Námeti (Kostel Panny Marie Na Námeti), built during the Luxembourg era and located in historic centre of Kutna Hora, is one of the town's oldest and most important Roman Catholic churches.

Church of Virgin Mary Na Námeti together with the Church of St. James belongs among the oldest houses of God in town Kutná Hora. Its documented origins date back to the second half of the 14th century, but some architectural elements indicate even older roots. The church was built on the spot of medieval ore market.

Churchs present shape is the result of reconstruction carried out after a fire in 1470, when a new tower was built and the nave was revaulted. The interior was also refurnished during this reconstruction. It contains e.g. a late Gothic sanctuary by Matyáš Rejsek from 1504 or a precious plaener pulpit with sculptures of Holy Fathers (this exquisite piece of art with dramatic decorations was created by Wendel Rosskopf from the workshop of Benedict Ried after 1513). Petr Brandl, famous Czech Baroque painter living in Kutná Hora at the end of his days, was buried in the main nave of the Church of Virgin Mary in 1735.
