H-Bomb’s Friday Photo, week 4: skulls and bones in the Czech Republic

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. (For that reason, Sedlec Ossuary is also known as the Church of Bones.) Let’s take a look inside that chapel, where some of those skulls and bones form a very eerie tunnel:

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.

  1. You’re right–don’t go toward the light! I have been to this ossuary twice. It really is a fascinating place.


    • @Jenna: I’m not sure I would go back a second time. Not to the creepy chapel, anyway. I feel like I’m lucky enough to have survived my first visit without getting drawn in to that tunnel. 🙂
