Have you ever been lying in bed at night, trying to fall asleep, when you found yourself wondering what a church would look like decorated with the remains of 40,000+ people?
Yeah, me neither. But when I heard that such a thing exists, I figured I had to see it.
About an hour train ride outside of Prague, Sedlec Ossuary looks like a pretty normal European church from the outside.
Inside, not so much.
The aura inside was peaceful and calm. The bones were arranged over a century ago to honor the dead. A half-blind monk was the “artist”.
Really extraordinary. Have you ever seen anything like it?
