  • There really isn't that much to see and do at Kutna Hora other than the Bone Chapel/Sedlec Ossuary. The trip there is easy enough DIY (buy a train ticket, which is down right cheap, to Kutna Hora Mest...  more »
  • Simply put, this is a must see. On par with the Paris Catacombes. The trip out to Kutna Hora is easy enough. You don't need to spend lots of money on tours as it's pretty cheap to do it yourself. You ...  more »
  • The"church of skeletons" is an hour drive from Prague. From the outside, the church doesn't seem like much but inside is a different story. Filled with the skeletons 60,000 people it really is an amaz...  more »

  • A church with a difference: 40 000+ skeletons artistically arranged and stored in this small church. Photos don’t portray the atmosphere you feel among all these bones. These bones were exhumed from the cemetery which needed more space due to extended wars, a plague and people wanting burial in these Holy Ground ( some soil was brought by a priest from Jerusalem!). The site is about 2km out of the town, near the Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary. A combo-ticket for these two and St. Barbara Cathedral costs Kr 220 vs 260 if the three are bought separately
  • While on my way, i kept wondering how it is ....well as i arrived, i stood awhile at the entrance with a narrow staircase leading down and lights was dime. I say nothing and stop talking due to the atmosphere. I just imagine how they resembles all the bones into a well designed patterns. Simply amazing! Renovation still going on at the time i visited and a bit messy infront of the Church.
  • It costs 90 Crowns per person. And is a small place. So, the visit is small and chilly. Bring your jackets and scarves!! As, it takes short time to finish the visit and hence you don't have anything to do until the next train back to Prague. My advice is to but the combo 110 Crowns ticket and visit other place to pass your time. The walk towards this place is short and easy so there's not really a need to take the bus.. All in all a unique experience.
  • Interesting place to visit. Nothing big but when you see thousand of 500 years old bones, it gives you some goose flash. Very interesting story. Worth to visit.
  • Creepy and beautiful at the same time. There isn't much else to say. There are a ton of bones and they are arranged in some very unique ways. The place itself is fairly tiny. But that doesn't lessen it's impact. It's cold, darker, and you are surrounded by bones. But it is still a very cool experience and when you add in the tour of the other church just down the road it is totally worth the hour+ drive out of the city of Prague. Walk around a bit. Read the history and just take small jaunt through the town. Take some really unique pictures and brag to your friends. I know I did!
