An out-of-this-world (creepy, in some ways) experience to see crypts full of bones, skulls arranged into all kinds of "artwork". It's a half day trip by train from Prague to Kutna Hora to the Sedlec Ossuary (Bone Church) and surrounding cemetery.

It's pretty macabre, but also impressive. I've never seen anything like it. In 1870 a local man called Frantisek Rint was allowed to use the bones of around 40,000 people to decorate the church. There is a bone chandelier and all sorts of bone wall decorations and hangings. No photos allowed.

Did a half day trip to Kutna Hora where we saw one of the most famous Bone Chapels. I have a warning on this because some might find it disturbing or disrespectful like many in our group. This 14th Century Chapel is the burial location for over 60,000 people. Over half of them died from the Plague. Although churches and chapels around the Christian world typically have crypts or burial grounds, these are displayed openly and "artistically." Not sure what I think. Our guide didn't seem to comprehend the question when I asked. The chapel has been well-preserved, although there is significant ongoing archaeological work.

Warning: disturbing cemetery/church... visit with caution😬 Right outside Prague in the town of Kutna Hora you can make a visit to an Ossuary—a chapel adorned with human skeletons—estimated at this point to be the remains of approximately 60,000 people! Quite creepy, but so unique I had to see it..

OK. This is an inexpensive and relatively easy one hour train ride from Prague. When I'm in Europe, and I like to see odd things I can't see in the U.S. The church is about a 15 minute walk from the train station. It's of course unlike anything you've ever seen, dark, dank, weird. Takes about 15 minutes. Harder to get to and see than the Catacombs of Paris or the Capuchin crypt at Sta Maria della Concezisone dei Cappuccini in Rome. Not entirely sure I'd recommend the effort. We didn't spend long here and raced back to the train station to catch an earlier train back to Prague so as not to waste time.
