We visited as part of a Kutna Hora tour. The building is very beautiful. The court, the chapel, and the exhibits were very interesting. Fascinating coin collection.

Most tours of the town end here. Pretty, and a bit interesting that speaks of the historical importance of the second most important city of Bohemia. Glad we saw it, but is not going to stand out as a fantastic sight.

Loved the tour of the Italian court. Interesting history, both as a royal dwelling and as a place of business. The history of coins in Kutna Hora, demonstrated by an 'actual' coin maker. Enjoyed the tiny door, through which the king apparently could walk with the crown on his head. But the highlight for me was the amazing art nouveau... More

The Italian Court is an impressive building in the heart of Kutna Hora. From its central courtyard various tours are offered. We took the minting one. We got a brief history about the castle which had been developed as both an administration house and a centre for minting in the 1400s until the 1700s. The miners worked six days a... More

This was an added attraction on my visit to Kutná Hora. We had just missed the beginning of an English language guided tour and so paid for a non-guided tour. However the woman at the ticket office called us and said we could join in half way through and we were shown through several rooms not included on the tour... More

i found a very nice, quiet and tranquil place. i didn't take any tour to see this place, it's easy to find and you can admire the place on your own. if you have info in your guide book even better.

At first I thought the attraction was a little too sterile but as the tour progressed I realized that this was an educational attraction as opposed to just a tourist attraction. After this visit, I now know a lot more about the monetary system in place during the Middle Ages, why a place in Kutna Hoa is named the Italian... More
