History of Kutna Hora
The history of Kutna Hora is closely linked with the mining of silver. The Kutna Hora silver mining district, abounding in silver ore, eventually became one of medieval Europe's largest sources of silver. Already in the late 13th century, one third of Europe's total production of silver came from Kutna Hora. The Prague groschen, one of Europe's strongest currencies of the time, began to be minted here.
Thanks to its wealth, Kutna Hora became the second most important town of the Kingdom of Bohemia, and an economic, political, and cultural rival for the capital city Prague. The first recorded reference to a more systematic mining of the local deposits of silver ore dates from the second half of the l3th century. However, silver coins known as denars had been minted at the nearby Malin walled site, a residence of the Slavnik family, as early as in the l0th century.
