Today we have a special Halloween edition of our weekly photo series! Our featured picture is a chilling scene from the Czech Republic. Sedlec ossuary, in Kutná Hora (an easy day-trip from Prague), is a chapel that features the bones from some 40,000 people, arranged in decorative patterns.

Whatever you do, don’t go toward the light! 🙂 This spine-tingling photo was taken during my visit to the Czech Republic in June 2006. Incidentally, the historical town centre of Kutná Hora is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, so the town is well worth a visit; there’s a lot more to it than just the spooky ossuary seen here.
