As you may or may not know, only a 60-minute train ride away from the center of Prague is a church made of bones.

The church, decorated with over a staggering 10,000 people’s remains, makes this one of the most unique places to visit. There are over 40,000 bones in the lower level of the building, even featuring a large signature by the artist, and yes you guessed it, it’s written in bones.

Have you ever wondered what a chandelier made with jaw bones would look like hanging as a center piece in a room? Ever wondered what a candle holder would look like made of hip bones and knee joints? Well, this is the place to go.

Although often known as the church of bones, its official name is The Sedlec Ossuary and its pride comes from being one of the most unusual places you can visit. The church itself looks relatively normal from the outside, located in Kutna Hora.

That’s not all the city has to offer, for example the famous church of St.Barbara, built in 1388, one of the beautiful Gothic churches you will see. There is a great selection of restaurants and small local shops. There are multiple other churches too, as well as a castle, making it a great place for a day trip. The train connection from Prague to Kutna Hora is great with the ticket costing roughly only 200 CZK. It’s a beautiful, quiet city and perfect for the most curious of minds.
