We visited a "bone church" in this small town. There are the bones of 40,000 folks in this small religious structure. They were laid and stacked by monks in geometric artistic designs. There is supposed to be some grandiose message about how the dead and the living are connected and joined in Heaven. But it is hard not to just gape at the place. And hard to know whether to be freaked out or intrigued by it. The chandelier is supposed to have been made from every bone in the body.
Definitely not something you would find on a tourist route through the USA!
As if to bring us back to the land of the living, we passed this marvelous field of sunflowers on the way from Kutna Hora back into Prague. They seemed to dance in the wind and their faces were absolutely enormous.
Kutna Hora appeared to be a town that had much more to offer than the unusual ossuary. There were silver mines and a charming city centre. But you know us - traveling at the speed of light! Creepy though it was, I am glad we saw the "bone church" in Kutna Hora. Another glimpse at life and the people of the Czech Republic.
