I went here are part of a ghost tour to the Czech Republic. The church was bigger that it looked from the outside. Over 40,000 sets of bones are inside. Definitely a one-of-a-kind place.

We walked from the centre of town to see both the Ossuary and the Cathedral of Assumption of our Lady. It's a 20-25 minutes walk from the centre of town of Kutna Hora. The discounted fees for both sights is 110K with further discount if you are 60 and over. The amount of human bones used as decoration is staggering.... More

Seen this place on US television and had to see it. It's relatively small but large enough not to be disappointing. A must see if in the area. A reverent air to the place, who were these people? There is also a nice chapel upstairs. Closes early so get there before 3:00pm. We arrived at 3:00 and had time enough... More

Something very different to go and see. The bones are arranged in a very artistic manner and they look pretty good. The tour can be done in an hour. Free parking is directly out front. It is a 75 minute drive from the Prague CBD so if you leave the hotel by 8am then you can be back in Prague... More

This was a last minute addition of a side trip during our Viking River Cruise trip from Berlin to Prague, and we are so glad that we did it. Aside from the rather macabre aspect of using skeletal parts to decorate a church, it was amazing! In retrospect, what a way to respect all those bones unearthed due to floods... More

First of all ignore the organised trips, saw these advertised at £40 pet person. We went to main railway station in prague and got an express train to kutna hora. Then it is a 1300M walk to the church. (Map at door of train station to show you where to go). Church was amazing. Just check the photos. Cafe just... More

What an incredible mind! When nobody was talking about recycling this guy recycled 70,000 skeletons turning them into a work of art. Some may consider this a weird idea, but nobody can't argue about its originality.

The church itself is quite small, but the amount of bones is staggering. It's a strange feeling admiring a chandelier made out of people's spines and ribs but I would definitely recommend it if you are in or around Kutna Hora.

Fascinating history and a true work of art. It's a bit odd that there are so many human bones but all the same interesting. Your visit won't take long I think we saw everything in an hour.
