I realize it isn’t exactly respectful to have all these dead people’s remains used as decoration to make such a touristy spectacle but keep in mind, the black plague killed A LOT of people in Europe and they had A LOT of dead bodies to dispose of, the locals in the area thought it seemed like a pretty shitty idea to throw all the bones in a mass grave so someone took the role of arranging the bones in a more aesthetic manner than a pile of bones. It is quite a work of art in my opinion and I’m sure those dead people don’t have a problem with it. The Sedlec Ossuary is the Czech Republic’s most highly visited tourist attraction outside their capital city of Prague and it brings some wonderful business to a very sleepy little town in the Czech countryside. We ate at a 3 table restaurant down the road, real tiny local place. The food and the service was awesome, definitely worth the visit. (Also no graffiti all over the place like in Prague.)
