If you visit the Czech Republic, make sure not to miss the Sedlec Ossuary in Kutná Hora. The interior of the chapel has been artistically decorated with an estimated 40,000 to 70,000 skeletons due to overcrowding in the nearby cemetry back in the 16th century.

These pictures show the decor which includes a bone chandelier and skulls decorating archways and a coat of arms. It is said to be one of the most popular tourist attractions in the country with over 200,000 visitors annually.

Would you visit this macabre place of worship?
