Skulls in a church...

Even as we saw the little church in a distance a strange feeling comes creeping up at the back of your neck.

                                 With graves surrounding the church, the feeling is a bit sinister.

As if Meatloaf himself was visiting, this bat-out-of hell was parked in front of the church.

Entering the church, you pass under this doorframe decorated with human skulls and bones.

                         A family crest is on one wall. Notice the crow picking the eye of the skull.

                                                                       On one of the pillars.

                                                   The chandelier in the middle of the room.

                                             From top to bottom, decorated with human bones.

                                                               A shrine in one corner.

Of cause this is the church in the Sedlec monastery from 1870 in Kutna Hora in the Czech Republic.
40 000 people's bone decorate this little church and make for an interesting attraction.
