Situated in the Central Bohemian Region of Bohemia, approximately 1.5 hours away from Prague, lies a city named Kutna Hora. Now, Kutna Hora is no ordinary city. Within its walls, a bone church can be found. Just like its name suggests, this church is comprised of the bones of the deceased and has become the final resting place of 40, 000 people.
At the end of the 15th century, the cemetery of Kutna Hora was partially reduced and the bones from the abolished graves were moved into the church.
Legend states that a half-blind monk arranged all of the bones and skulls into the pyramids that you see today when you walk into the church. After his work was done, he got his eyesight back. (Note to self: If I ever go blind, re-arrange bones into a pyramid)
In case you were wondering, the church also sells skulls for those who want to have the deceased head of an individual in their living room (or their bathroom? bedroom? torture chamber?). You’re welcome.
