Bartolomějské návrší

Poklad v srdci Kolína

Decanal St.Bartholomew's Church has always been the dominant feature and the most valuable architectonic sight of the town. The church is situated in altitude of 210 metres on the highest spot of Kolín's historical core. All the area of so-called church hillock is very unique. The place underwent a vast revitalization in 2018-2020.

You can find here especially the ossuary with rich ornamental decoration or the building of former parish school with interactive exhibition. The belfry hides the church treasure and lapidarium and offers the view of the city centre. Green outer bailey area tempts you for a walk and relax by the herbal or rose garden.
