Kutna Hora: Bone Church

30 May

The city of Kutna Hora has some very rare and strange attractions. The Bone Church is a church in Kutna Hora with a cemetery surrounding it. During the Bubonic Plague grave space was limited so the Bohemians found an interesting way to make space. A blind Monk stacked bones in the basement of the church and they were later used for decoration. 40-70,000 skeletons were used in the construction of this artwork.DSCF0124 DSCF0127ImageImage
