Day 56: Kutná Hora, Czech RepublicAugust 15, 2017 in Czech Republic ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C
Today we travelled to Kutná Hora (about an hour from Prague) to visit the Sedlec Ossuary, St. Barbara's Cathedral and the Church of the Assumption of our Lady. They were all pretty neat and very old.
The ossuary is the final resting place to 65,000 people and they arranged the bones artistically to make decorations or furnishings. When you walk around the cemetery outside, you also see people buried from 2015 so it's pretty recent even though the church has been there since the 12th century and the cemetery is rather small.
We also walked around the town a bit which was nice and reminded me of Old Montreal with all the cobblestone. We walked a good amount today too as we couldn't figure out the bus schedule and since it's such a small town, no one we spoke to really understood English.
By the end of the night, we went back to the same restaurant for the third time in a row so I'm sure they will know us by name soon enough.Read more
