For medieval history buffs, the Czech town of Kutna Hora has two great attractions: St. Barbara’s Church, often called a cathedral because of its grandeur, and the Sedlec Ossuary, located beneath the Cemetery Church of All Saints outside the town. St. Barbara’s is one of the best examples of Gothic architecture in central Europe and is a UNESCO world heritage site. But visitors are more attracted to the ossuary, a chapel containing bones of more than 40,000 people, arranged in decorative patterns.

Awesome Czech’ Church built using 40,000 human skeletons In the heart of the Czech countryside, Kutná Hora houses some of the most beautiful architecture in the whole of Bohemia. ‘Bone Church’: Located in Czech city Kutná Hora, Sedlec Ossuary is adorned with around 40,000 human skeletons. Positioned around 70 kilometers (about 43 miles) east of Prague, this medieval city competed politically, economically and culturally with the capital city during the 13th to 16th centuries, thanks in part to the silver mine boom that enriched the area at the time.
