Very interesting small museum

Excellent historical account of the silver mines & the miners who worked in them hundreds of years ago when Kutna Hora produced most of the silver in Europe

Florentine experts were employed to set up the mint...hence the name. The silver started to run out in the 16th century and the mint closed in 1727. Very interesting museum showing how the silver was turned into coin. Add it to the Ossuary and St. Barbara's and you have a good morning or afternoon in the area.

Hello, Sewaterman, I wanted to say "thank you" that you liked our museum, but it looks like you are talking not about The Italian Court, but about Czech Museum of Silver, where is possible to see underground and mines of Kutna Hora. What museum you were talking about then? Regards! More

During the 13 and 14 cent Kutna Hora was the second most important Bohemian town after Prague, thanks to its silver mines. The town provided one third of the total European silver production, and minted the Prague Grosh, the most stable European currency. In this bldg it was minted and it also served as a King's residence when in town.

The city of Kunta Hora's history is tied to the silver mines in the surrounding hills and is how it became famous. This building is where the coins were minted and was also the royal residence when the king was in residence.

We booked and enjoyed a half-day (6 hour) mini-bus trip to Kutna Hora and we would recommend this. The tour we booked picked us up at our hotel and we were dropped off in Wenceslas Square afterwards. The whole place (Kutna Hora) is very interesting and picturesque. The Spanish Court (effectively the Czech Imperial Mint) was a highlight of the... More

Our tour guide, Danny, was friendly and knowledgeable. He gave us a tour of the mint where he demonstrated coin making skills and discussed the history of the silver mines in Kutna Hora. The tour was short but interesting.

We visited over Easter weekend and it was very quiet and not that open. Looks really interesting if you are history/coin/religion/art buff. Ok for a quick visit with family
