Trip Planner: Europe / Czech Republic / Bohemia / Central Bohemian Region / Kutna Hora / Italian Court
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.For Italian Court and beyond, use our Kutna Hora road trip app to get the most from your Kutna Hora vacation.

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.
