The Ossaryum of Sedlet


Dear Reader,
I’ve just visited the creepiest church ever: the Ossaryum of Sedlet.

Ossaryum of Sedlet, 65 km from Prague:

The entire chapel is accurately decorated with bones. The creator of this magnificent place was the Duke of Schwarzemberg, inspired by an abbot who in the year 1200 threw on the ground a small amount of sand from Golgotha promising Heaven to whomever was to be buried in that place.
Very basic practice of religion back in those days…

More on this very soon.
