We spent a week in Prague and one day we did a trip to Kutna hora. This place absolutely blew us away, I've never seen something like that - thousands of skeleton connected in a huge decoration.... Although it is under the construction, I highly recommend to visit

Entierly decorated with human skeletons, (40,000 of them), this church makes an interesting visit on a day out from Prague.

This was one of my main spots i wanted to visit and I was not disappointed. Even for the fact that its under construction and the famous chandelier is not there for what i heard the past year because of damage and is also currently under construction. Still worth the trip.

This is a difficult one to review as I can imagine people living the place. If you have extra time in Prague and are looking for things to do then I would definitely recommend, if you are stuck for time it's not worth it.

Ossuary is simply ossuary. Someone will see art, someone will see saddnes and death, but for about 80Kč you will visit unusuall and interesting place

This is the strangest place but fascinating. We went in just after they opened and were lucky enough to have the place to ourselves for about 15 minutes before the coach loads arrived. The chapel is undergoing major renovation at the moment and the large central chandelier is currently away being refurbished. There is also an upstairs to the chapel... More

My husband and I visited this amazing place during a tour of Kutna Hora. I had done quite a lot of research into the Ossuary and when we arrived we were lucky that it was before the crowds and we managed to have a good look and feel for the place. They were doing some excavation work outside and we... More

I believe this is the cemetary next to the Bone Church, if so it is interesting how the plots are and some have families with them. some are above, some are not. Some have markers and others are worn out. It is interesting to see in different countries of how they are laid out

A really unique place decorated with bones of over 50,000 people. Unfortunately the giant chandelier of bones hanging from the centre of the nave was temporarily removed from the church for some rehab works, so we could not see it. However, the place was still very impressive. Absolutely worth the time and money spent for a sightseeing tour from Prague.
