Sedlec Ossuary aka the Church of Bones

01

The Sedlec Ossuary also known as the Church of Bones is one of the most unusual chapels you will ever see.

It’s a small Roman Catholic chapel, located beneath the Cemetery Church of All Saints in Sedlec, a suburb of Kutná Hora in the Czech Republic.
The ossuary is artistically decorated by more than 40.000 human skeletons.

One of the most fascinating artistic works inside the Sedlec Ossuary is the big chandelier of bones that lies in the center of the Church of Bones. The immense chandelier contains at least one of every human bone. Another impressive artwork is the coat of arms of the Schwarzenberg family that is also made of human bones.
