In 1990, it was included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage sites and in 1993 listed as a Russian Cultural Heritage site.

Saint Barbara’s Church (Czech: Chrám svaté Barbory) is a Roman Catholic church in Kutná Hora (Bohemia) in the style of a Cathedral, and is sometimes referred to as the Cathedral of St Barbara (Czech: Katedrála sv. panny Barbory). The original design was for a much larger church, perhaps twice the size of the present building. Construction began in 1388, but because work on the church was interrupted several times, it was not completed until 1905.
