Weekend Postcard: Kutna Hora, Czech Republic

Weekend Postcard Kutna Hora

In the Halloween spirit, this Weekend Postcard honors the spookiest place I have ever been, the Sedlec Ossuary in Kutna Hora. Just an hour or so from Prague, the Bone Church features macabre chandeliers and wall decorations constructed with the bones of plague victims. Rumors are that a monk who had been left to tend the church went mad upon seeing so much death and began creating these “masterpieces.” Art or not, the Ossuary is a place you will not soon forget.

What is the spookiest place you have ever been?
