#5 – Sedlec Ossuary
Sedlec Ossuary is a small chapel in the Czech Republic, which is also known as the Church of Bones. The church is decorated with more than 40,000 human skeletons, including a chandelier and a coat of arms. The story behind the magnitude of skeletons in this relatively small chapel starts when the abbot of the Sedlec Cistercian Monastery returned from a trip to Jerusalem with a jar of holy soil in the 13th century. Since then, many people demanded to be buried there, hence the expansion of the cemetery and the unusual décor.
