Fodor's Prague & the Best of the Czech Republic
Kostnice (ossuary) Review
This is the reason many people outside the Czech Republic have heard of, and make the trip to, Kutná Hora. Forget all that beautiful baroque architecture and descend into the darkness with some bones. Bones from about 40,000 people have been lovingly arranged in the Kaple Všech svatých (All Saints Chapel), more commonly called the Bone Church. Built in the 16th century, this church forced the movement of a nearby graveyard. Monks from the nearby Sedlec Monastery decided to use the displaced cemetery bones to decorate the church with beautiful, weird, and haunting results. Check out the chandelier as it's made with every bone in the human body. It's down right spooky.
Church of the Assumption of the Virgin. The Church of the Assumption of the Virgin across the street from the ossuary at the former Sedlec Monastery exemplifies the work of Giovanni Santini (1667–1723). A master of expressive line and delicate proportion, this one-of-a-kind architect fathered a bravura hybrid of Gothic and baroque. Vítězná, 284 03. 327–561–143 parish. 30 Kč, prior booking needed.
