From the real world get away, Even just for a day.

A chapel in the Czech Republic uses 40,000-70,000 HUMAN SKELETONS as decoration.

The most prominent decoration is a gigantic chandelier made from at least one of every bone in the human body!

The Sedlec Ossuary is a small Roman Catholic Chapel located beneath the Cemetery Church of All Saints in Sedlec, Czech Republic. In the late 13th century, Henry, the abbot of the neighboring monastery, took a pilgrimage to Jerusalem by order of the king of Bohemia.

Upon his return, he sprinkled dirt from Golgotha (the hill on which Jesus Christ is said to have been crucified) upon the Sedlec cemetery – which is the reason this site became an extraordinarily popular burial location.
