Those with a taste for the macabre will love Bone Church. Also referred to as the Sedlec Ossuary, this captivating structure is located near Kutna Hora in the Czech Republic. When the Sedlec monastery was purchased by the Schwarzenbergs in 1870, a village woodcarver by the name of Frantisek Rint was allowed to decorate it with the remains of the nearly 40,000 people housed in the onsite crypt.
The vaulted ceilings of this church are adorned with garlands of skulls, and long ropes of femurs. There is even a massive chandelier that features at least one of every bone that's found within the human body. There are also four large pyramids that are made from bones as well, erected within the corner chapels.
The church alter is adorned with various ornate chalices and crosses, and the designer placed his signature in bones just near the base of the stairs.Places nearby:
