" 2 huge chalices" Top 5 Page for this destination Bone Church - Ossuary - Sedlec Tip by globetrott

  Kutna Hora - the Ossuarium / Kostnice
by globetrott

Two huge chalices are arranged by bones and set up in side-niches at the entrance of the church.
It was the intention of Frantisek Rint to show the visitors how short life will be, and that
they should make the best out of it.
And that even those people, who - some centuries ago - fighted in a battle against each other are arranged now next to each other...
