Goth Paradise

To be fair, while Kutná Hora’s Sedlec Ossuary, also known as the bone chapel, may seem like the sort of attraction only visited by weird people, it is in fact the opposite. The small chapel is decorated with the bones of roughly 40,000-70,000 people, and is visitef by hoards of tourists of all walks of life. 


I suppose with the people having been dead so long no one get’s creeped out by it. Or maybe they just try not to think about it. Generally, the reality of death doesn’t sit well with me. At all. But aesthetically I find it intriguing. 


The chapel is one of 12 World Heritage protected sites in the Czech Republic. It may sound weird and creepy (and it is), but it is honestly a sight only seen to be believed. Whoever thought decorating a chapel with human remains was a good idea?
