... us in that tight of a space! Since we have previously toured caves in the U.S., we were not completely shocked by the tight spaces or lack of light. While we really enjoyed the tour, we definitely missed not knowing the language; it's really awkward when everyone else is laughing at a joke and you have no idea what was said!

... Death in the 14th century and the Hussite Wars in the 15th century thousands of people were buried here. Around 1400 somebody decided the cemetary was a really good place to build a Gothic church and thousands of skeletons were exhumed in the process. More skeletons were exhumed over the years and in 1511 the task of organizing the collection of bones was given to a half-blind monk.

New construction was done on the church in the 1700's ...
