This is a very strange church that has been decorated with the bones of the former residents. The Graveyard of this church was dusted with some soil from the cemetery at Golgotha in the Holy Land. Making it, in the medieval mind, an extension of that cemetery. That meant it was a desirable place to be interred, almost as good... More

What a place. Have seen nothing like it before. The history of why it was there was very interesting. Not sure it would be to everyone's taste.

This has been on a list of places to visit for quite some time. I could not believe the amount of bones that are stored here. We were lucky to arrive just as a tour group was leaving so we had tons of unobstructed views for our pictures. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone to visit as it... More

I was immediately seized upon entering the Bone Church. The UNESCO-listed Sedlec Ossuary contains the bones of over 40,000 human skeletons. The sight of so many artistically arranged human bones in this small Roman Catholic church is equally disturbing and fascinating. A visit will help you discover how and why the bone church came to be. The Sedlec Ossuary and... More

True that this chapel/church was ornate with skulls and bones of various men. It is not eerie when they are crowded with visitors. Do respect the surroundings though. It's still a cemetery. Worth a visit and pay respect to the dead. Good to learn more of our world history too.

The Ossuary Cemetery Church is an amazing place to visit. I have wanted to come here for years and was so happy to finally get the opportunity to. It's located about 90 miles outside of Prague. We were staying in Prague but took a day trip out here - which are offered all around Prague. It's easier if you have... More

The Sedlec Ossuary is a small Roman Catholic chapel, located beneath the Cemetery Church of All Saints in Sedlec, a suburb of Kutná Hora in the Czech Republic. It is one of twelve World Heritage Sites in the Czech Republic. The ossuary is estimated to contain the skeletons of between 40,000 and 70,000 people, whose bones have, in many cases,... More

You would not exclusively go to Kutna Hora to visit this. You might be a little disappointed if you did. It is worth a visit as part of a day trip to Kutna Hora. Therd are 3 others attractions you would visit as well making for a good day out. The church is small and you might struggle to spend... More

Was told about this place on the flight from London by a Prague native. Was very glad she did. This is a must see for anyone visiting Prague. I have never seen anything like it before.
