The Sedlec Ossuary (The church of bones) is at Kutna Hora, 50 miles to the east of Prague. It is reputed to contain the skeletons of between 40,000 and 70,000 bodies.
In many cases, these skeletons have been artistically arranged to form decorations and furnishings for the chapel.
Four enormous bell-shaped mounds occupy the corners of the chapel, and an enormous chandelier of bones, which contains at least one of every bone in the human body, hangs from the centre of the nave.
