Kutná Hora is a small town at about 80km east of Prague in Czech Republic. While it’s listed as a Historical Town Centre in the UNESCO World Heritage list, there is not much to see there. Yet if you need one reason to go there, it must be Sedlec Ossuary, and it’s a compelling one.
The exterior of Sedlec Ossuary won’t catch anyone’s eyes but the interior will keep your eyes wide open. Most interior decorations are made of real human bones of people who are supposed to “rest” there. Out of all decorations, the chandelier shown in this picture is the most spectacular one as it is large and with very fine details. There are other well crafted artefacts such as a large Schwarzenberg Code of Arms but this one really stands out for me.
When we visited it we did not feel scared perhaps because it was day time and there were actually lots of other people around. Obviously in the evening when it’s closed, I believe the mood will be completely different and I have no interest to experience.
