Day 8: On the Road to Kutna Hora

IMG_7008

A short train ride from Prague is the small town of Kutna Hora where you will find the Sedlec Ossuary, more commonly known as the Bone Chapel.  Inside the church, bones and skulls have been made into all kinds of things, from chandeliers to coat of arms.  These bones came from the victims of the Black Death who were buried, then later exhumed and stacked in the chapel.
