Welcome to Italian court, former royal mint and palace
Current look of the building is the result of a reconstruction that took place in years 1893-1898 led by architect Ludvík Lábler, and consequently an expensive reconstruction done by the town of Kutná Hora in years 2017-2021 which was co-financed from the European Union’s structural funds and the state’s budget.
Apart from the seat of Kutná Hora’s town hall and the town’s leadership the premises also hold an exposition which brings visitors closer to the rich history of the former silver mining town, with representative spaces serving both the municipality as well as local citizens and visitors of the national cultural monument. In Italian court you will see the ageless and sacred coin in the Royal Mint exposition. The mint was founded by Wenceslaus II. whose chamber you will find made up as a film set one floor up along with other chambers of the Royal Palace. You can also experience an eerie surprise in the basement where you will discover the Mystery of the Lost Treasure. In the corridors you will be met by both long gone and recent important figures and celebrities od Kutná Hora’s past and learn about the municipality’s history.
A wide range of souvenirs can be purchased at the ticket office. Especially both hand and machine embossed coins which are copies of medieval coins made at Italian court (Prague groshen, parvus, thaler and others). We offer publications about Italian court, ceramics and glass embellished with the theme of Kutná Hora, tourist stamps and other collectibles.
You can enjoy our delicious SWAN brand coffee and drink it in peace in our visitor centre. Another part of our exposition called World of Kutná Hora Flyover can be found there and it is meant especially for curious explorers or as a relaxing point between our guided tours.
Please come in, we look forward to each of you.
