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

We visited this as part of a day tour. We had a tour guide from the building whose accent was really hard to understand so it was difficult to really get the most out of this However it is a significant building so if visiting the city you should probably go.

This was included in my tour to Kutna Hora and it was great little side trip. The history is fascinating. It is amazing to be able to walk among something so old.

building was reconstructed at the turn of the 15th century, allegedly upon the request of King Wenceslas II, and the chapel and the royal palace were added. Beautiful chapel redecorated in the Art Nouveau style
