When you visit Prague, plan a day trip to Kutna Hora and Sedlec to see some beautiful cathedrals and the UNESCO recognized Sedlec Ossuary or Bone Church. We stopped first in Sedlec and visited the Church of the Assumption of Our Lady and Saint John the Baptist, then the Sedlec Ossuary. Since it’s over a mile from Sedlec to Kutna Hoar, we grabbed a beer at a pub while waiting for an Uber to shuttle us. Sedlec Ossuary is simply stunning. The craftsmanship of the art pieces made of bones is like nothing we had ever seen. Don’t miss the family crest of the House of Schwarzenberg, with the raven picking out the eye of a Turk. Oddly, it’s not as macabre as it appears in photos. Check out the My Czech Republic site on traveling to the villages and buy your tickets directly from the train line. Below are my favorite thirteen photos from Sedlec and Kutna Hora.
