Former royal mining town of Kutná Hora belongs together with the Cistercian monastery in Sedlec to the most attractive historical seats of Europe. Thanks to the exceptional wealth from the vast deposits of silver ore and the royal mint in Italian court has Kutná Hora become the treasury of the Bohemian Kingdom in the Middle Age and also the second biggest town after Prague.

The town of Kutná hora and the monastery in Sedlec can be approached from many points of view-e.g. of the general , church, mining or minting history or the history of civilisation and art.

The project of Disappeared places of Kutná Hora opens a view on the historic shape of still standing buildings or those, which have already disappeared and suppose a basic orientation in the history of both locations. In any case it is not a nostalgic reminding of ”the old past times” , it may give up a deeper approach to the historical shape of the two outstanding settlements-Kutná Hora and Sedlec, which formed the history of the Czech state, and to show the approach of former generations to this legacy. The project of Disappeared places of Kutná Hora gathers preserved historical collection with photography, replicas of oil paintings, graphics and frescos, which document the disappeared shape of the town, important buildings, houses and streets in the period from the 17th to the 20th century.

This vast and unique collection will serve to the researchers in the field of the history, art history and architects or designers and conservationists as a base for responsible and qualified care of the historic heart of the town, but also to the large range of people interested in architectonical and cultural heritage of the town, its inhabitants and visitors. This granted project was solved in 2008 and 2009 under the name of Pictorial sources of the town of Kutná Hora in financial support of the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic in the programme Support for UNESCO listed sights, further support was also provided by the Central Bohemian Region, the town of Kutná Hora and the Kutná Hora-UNESCO listed sight foundation. In 2008 there were digitalised more than 1000 pictorial sources originated from sixteen public or private collections and ancient monuments, in 2009 was created the promotion and presentation of this pictorial collection through the web sites, book, exhibition and a professional seminar.
