Saint Barbara's Church in Kutna Hora (Czech republic) is one of the most famous Gothic churches in central Europe and it is a UNESCO world heritage site. Construction began in 1388, but because work on the church was interrupted several times, it was not completed until 1905. The first architect was probably Johann Parler, son of Peter Parler, but studies say that Peter Parler had participated at least as a co-author of the draft design. Work on the building was interrupted for more than 60 years during the Hussite Wars and when work resumed in 1482, Matej Rejsek and Benedikt Rejt, two architects from Prague, assumed responsibility.
