If one goes to Prague then this is almost a must. About 120km southeast of Prague lies the city of Kutna Hora where the "Bonechurch" is. You can go there by bus, train, taxi and as we did - by rental car. I would recommend...More

Didn't know quite what to expect. It was truly unusual and pretty fascinating. The entire experience was worth the drive.

I had read about this place prior to my visit but the scale of the skeletal arrangements done so artistically gave goosebumps. Each arrangement is done so perfectly that nothing could be added or subtracted to it . Completely awesome. I was also touched to...More

the bones of about 40,000 people who passed away prior to 1873. Somewhat macabre but can be viewed with respect. Make sure you walk around outside where skeletons are being excavated so that the foundations of the church can be strengthened.

Like many others said, this is definitely not something you will see everyday. Instead of it being creepy or spooky, I found it really intriguing. The story behind was also really interesting. The chandelier in the middle of the room is just amazing. The Kutna...More

As explained by our guide from sandeman's Jirky, this site should be viewed as a memory of those whose lives were lost - what the area went through the centuries. We must not condemn whoever made it.

We have noticed from 16th september until november that there is no direct train to kutna hora from prague. Can anyone help on the best way to get there as we are mainly going for the ossuary? Organised trips we have read do not spend very long at the ossuary and mostly spent in Kutna Hora itself? Main reason for us to go to Prague was for the ossuary but now the big chandlier is down and the trains are up the wall we are hoping we get there and enjoy.Help?
