The worst trip in my life (Dec 2014) Not long into the journey we realized that the guide was a pain. He talked non-stop with hands gesticulating in the air with every sentence. He spoke in "English" as everyone on board said that they could understand English, but despite the Belgium people also saying they could understand English he launched... More

Last day in Prague, my boyfriend and I were bored of the city and decided to take a train to Kutna hora. You can catch a train from Hlavni nadrazi- central station. The board will tell you which train. At Kutna hora, you would walk to the nearest tourist info centre which is about 10-13 mins walk towards the centrum.... More

Very scary and iconic church which is full of bones and special atmosphere. It is a bit small for that price. But I have never seen anything like that inside of any church.

This is one of the most incredibly interesting sites I have ever visited! A memorial to the deceased who's bones are arranged here, the history and legend described at the ossuary is absolutely fascinating. As well as being very different and quite cool! Not too difficult to get to from Prague and worth the trip - we didn't get the... More

The church is not a big one, white outside and inside. But behind the door of this simply-looked cemetery church is hiding a sad and a little bit scary scene - you can see human bones everywhere inside. There are many decorations in the church made by human bonds, and it is strange and scary. The most important thing is... More

20 second walk from hotel Ruze and definitely worth going. Quite creepy and also sad in some ways like they aren't resting in peace. Like nothing I've seen before. Have to go if in town

I left my camera in the car, and had a fight at the entrance, as they insisted I paid another £5 to get in! Thankfully they relented, but there was no need. The bones are covered in cobwebs, so clearly not kept clean - but hey, it add's to the weird atmosphere. A very very strange place, and surprisingly surrounded... More

My friend and I booked onto this tour (14 people in total) whilst in Prague we booked it through the tour operator with the yellow umbrellas. We were taken to the train station before heading on a train journey of 1.5hrs, the tour guide then took us on a tram which failed to stop at our destination so she stated... More
