This is a series of pictures taken at the Sedlec Ossuary in the Czech Republic. The ossuary is really REALLY cool. It’s considered to be a ‘creepy’ tourist attraction, but I don’t really think of it that way at all, it just seems interesting. The Ossuary is decorated entirely with skeletons, and every bone found in the human body can be found somewhere in this church.

Skeleton Chandelier

Taken at the Sedlec Ossuary in Kutna Hora, Czech Republic. The Sedlec Ossuary, also known as the bone church, is located in the small town of Kutna Hora, about a 45 minute train ride outside of Prague.
