On the outside, it looks like a typical Bohemian Baroque chapel surrounded by the cemetery of a modest size. Once you enter the building you are stepping in the kingdom of death. Sedlec Ossuary is one of the so-called “Bone Chapels” that were built around Europe by the devout monks. It contains more than 40 000 human remains and serves a macabre illustration of “Memento Mori”.

Just a hundred meters away from the Ossuary you find the glorious Sedlec Cathedral – one of the biggest cathedrals of its time. If the Bone Chapel is a kingdom of death, Sedlec Ossuary is a heavenly place with incredibly high ceilings with Baroque paintings.
