Historic Site · Tourist Spot
The Italian Court (Czech: Vlašský dvůr) is a palace in Kutná Hora. Originally, it was the seat of the Central Mint of Prague; it was named after the Italian experts who were at the forefront of the minting reform. The main area of the mint consisted of coin-makers-workshops, or Smithies, which were located around the courtyard, and the minting chamber, called “Preghaus”, where the Prague groschen were struck. After its reconstruction at the end of the 14th century, the Italian Court became a part-time royal residence.

  • Quite interesting guide but for locals it's much longer. For foreigners the guide takes about 20-30 minutes and you get a freshly mint aluminium coin. The locals tour for much longer, the ones we've seen entered 25 minutes before us and were still guided after we left.
  • Nice tour for about 45 min, about the minting and other uses of the italian court (tour 1+2, 115 crowns). A must if you are visiting Kutna Hora.
