One of my favourite parts of our trip to Europe was going on a day trip to Kutna Hora in the Czech Republic. We got up early and took the train from Prague; it only took a little over an hour.
We travelled to Kutna Hora to see the Sedlec Ossuary or "bone church". There are other ossuaries in Europe but this one is interesting because someone in the past decided to get creative with the bones. Ossuaries were used to house the skeletons of the dead when there was not enough space to bury them. The Sedlec Ossuary contains the bones of tens of thousands of people.
The cemetery outside of the ossuary was something to see in and of itself.
|Me BONING up on the history of the Sedlec Ossuary. See what I did there?|
All of this is made from REAL bones. I had never seen anything like it.
This is a place that I had wanted to visit for years. It was pretty awesome to finally see it for myself! Have you ever visited and ossuary before?
