Kutna Hora was founded around the 12th century when the silver fever broke out. Several thousand people moved for work in the neighbourhood and created the first settlement. The majority of the king´s wealth in this era came from silver from Kutna Hora. Thanks to it, Prague experienced a huge cultural boom and Kutna Hora competed with Prague for its importance in the 14th century.
