  • The visit to the ossuary of Sedlec and the Gothic church of Santa Bárbara is a must. Exotic tour note 10. Start by the ossuary and where you can buy combined ticket that gives right to view more attractions such as the chapel of the Virgin Mary in Sedlec which is even before the ossuary. Then take the bus to the Gothic church of Santa Barbara that is sensational and use the ticket. Reserve a day in Prague to visit these attractions in the town of Kutna Hora. The tour takes a full day and can be done by local agencies or, like me, go by train. This last option is harder but it's worth the adventure. After leaving the Gothic church walk on foot in the city and enjoy.

  • From Prague you're on less than an hour and for very little money with the train to Kutna Hora, where you can take an extra train or bus up to the chapel. On foot you are from the station on 20 minutes. So don't be tempted into expensive bustrips from Prague. We visited this attraction just because we have had during our trip, I would not categorize this under ' must-see '. We felt it was well worth it, because something we had never seen before. At the same time you are intrigued and disgusted by the realization that all those beautiful, separate decorations made from the remains of thousands and thousands of dead people. A strange experience. There were quite a lot of tourists, but not to the extent that it really disturbed. Even a class school children came here on a trip. Within an hour you have seen the Chapel, because she is not very large. When we visited the Chapel, the chandelier was not present because of repair work. If you want to see this per se, you can you will best inform in advance.

  • The spectacle of eerie but fascinating. It's no joke-here are the remains of the order 40000 people! Once you want to see with their own eyes. Input 120 CZK.

  • I have always been interested in visiting when I come to your country. There is a lady utuber...with the online tag it's black friday who is a Goth. She and her fiance traveled a long way to do an online blog of their experience in your church which was horrific to say the least. Shame on you all. They were treated like criminals and told after some discussion that they could go in but couldn't take pictures. She is VERY popular on utube with over a hundred thousand viewers. This church is one place I will NOT be putting on my vacation wish list. Again....shame on you and your judgemental little selves.
  • A very unique place, one of the few in the world. Due to a lot of deaths caused by wars and disease a lot of bones started to accumulate, so they decided to start making art of them. Eerie, but algo very interesting, there are shields of bone, chandeliers of bones, plain skulls with different damage, some actually survived the damage. Near there is a souvenir shop with interesting eerie items too, but I was unable to go there due to a very tight schedule in the tourism service I used...
  • I had previously seen photographs of this place, so I knew what to expect. But they did not prepare me for what I would see once I got there. It's isn't a large space but it feels much bigger than it actually is due to the elaborate designs made with skulls. The unfortunate deaths of so many provided the skulls used in decorating the ossuary. It's sectioned off into four different areas, each varying in design from the others. If you are not faint of heart, and can handle being surrounded by more skeleton bones than you can count, visit this place!!!
  • It's quite interesting, but very smaller than it seems in the pictures. I've been there last week and the main attraction, the chandelier made with bones, had been removed for repairs and should be relisted in 6 months. There's no advices about it before you pay the ticket (full price) and walk in. A bit disappointing.
  • Worth going. Never seen anything like it. It will invoke emotion which is a good thing I think. Worth the trip out from city center although it's not a particularly interesting walk from the city center to the Ossuary.
