The most famous tourist attraction in Kutna Hora, Sedlec Ossuary is one of a kind. Also known as the Church of Bones, the Sedlec Ossuary is a small chapel having its interiors decorated with over 40,000 human skeletons! Artistically decorated, the chapel even has a huge chandelier entirely made of skulls and bones. Wondering how this trend started? In the year 1278, when the King of Bohemia sent the abbot of the Sedlec Cistercian Monastery to Jerusalem, he brought back with him a jar of ‘Holy soil’. Once people got a whiff of this, they started desiring to be buried in this holy soil at Sedlec. Years later, when a gothic church was built near the cemetery, its basement was used as an ossuary. And there the bones stayed till 1870. A woodcarver named Frantisek Rint was then assigned the task of rearranging the bones. And the rest as they say is history! While exploring the Sedlec Ossuary, do check out the Church Of All Saints which is located upstairs.
