Sedlec Ossuary information
When the Schwarzenbergs purchased Sedlec monastery in 1870 they allowed a local woodcarver to get creative with the bones piled in the crypt (the remains of around 40,000 people), resulting in the remarkable ‘bone church’ of Sedlec Ossuary. Garlands of skulls hang from the vaulted ceiling, around a chandelier containing at least one of each bone in the human body.
Four pyramids of stacked bones squat in each of the corner chapels, and crosses, chalices and monstrances of bone adorn the altar. From April to October a minibus runs on demand (per person 35Kč, minimum three people) between Sedlec, Kutná Hora town centre and the Cathedral of St Barbara.
