The wealth of the Royal city of Kutná Hora was caused by the discovery of precious metals, especially silver and copper, used for currency production in entire Bohemian kingdom since 13th Century. This presence of silver ore started already in 12th Century truly “Silver rush” in future. Come to visit the city once called also as the jewel and the treasury of the country, town whose wealth elevated the Bohemian kingdom on the pedestal of fame and power. The start of mining and minting history of nearby Sedlec monastery is even dated back to 10th Century. From 13th Century Kutná Hora also became the seat of the central mint of the Czech lands, which was located in a small royal castle later called the Italian Court as a remembrance of Italian experts assisting with the planning and application of the minting reform.
In small layout of Kutná Hora district there is huge concentration of unique and exceptional monuments as Italian court, the countryside royal residence, eyewitness of important sovereigns’ decisions but the royal mint as well, gothic Saint Barbra cathedral, baroque Jesuits college or bizarre and unique Cemetery Church of All Saints with the Ossuary – the reason while Kutná Hora is visited in fact.

The rest of our visit will be relaxing walk through medieval and ancient city full of other precious monument on every corner. There will be also the time for shopping local souvenirs. And we will have a lunch at the most famous and historical restaurant.
