We took a day trip to the city of Kutna Hora. This is a small town one hour east of Prague. Kutna Hora is know for two main things. The silver mines, were closed when we were there, and Ossuary Sedlec. The Ossuary Sedlec holds a graveyard chapel from the end of the 14th century, rebuilt in baroque style by J.Santini. Decorated entirely with human bones which were arranged into pyramids by a half-blind monk, as early as 1511. It holds the bones of 40,000 people. Well, how could we miss this.
