Kutná Hora

Italian Court

This was where the money was. For centuries, the Italian Court was the centre of the country’s economic power boasting both the royal mint and home to the king when he came visiting the silver mines. The beginning of the Italian Court is believed to be at the end of the 13th century, when it served as the town castle. During the 14th century, the castle was gradually rebuilt into a mint. However, the greatest boom in construction activities did not take place until the end of the 14th century under the reign of King Wenceslas IV.

Visitors today can visit a permanent exhibition called The Royal Mint, all about money, as well as check out some of the more interesting parts of the building’s interior like the royal chapel and reception hall. Finally, for those looking for a bit of criminal enlightenment, housed here also is the Museum – Unveiling the Mysterious Face of Kutná Hora. Located in the cellar it offers guests details about medieval Kutná Hora criminal cases. The building is also home to the Town Hall.
