From Prague there was a train to Kutrahola, and I was lucky to catch the 7: 59 minute train to Kura Central Railway Station early in the morning, avoiding the trouble of changing trains in Kolin on other trains. Arriving at the station in about an hour and arriving at the Zedletz Tibetan Bone Hall at more than nine o'clock, there weren't many people, and they saw it quite clearly. When the Schwarzenberg family bought the Sedletz Monastery in the 19th century, a local carpenter was asked to decorate the church with human skeletons stored in the basement for centuries (accumulated for historical reasons such as the Black Death). So, the Holy Grail, the national emblem, the chandelier and the skull gold were used as decorative materials. The pyramids were built one by one.
The Church of Bones was originally an obscure monastery, famous for the 13th century Crusades that brought earth back from Jerusalem and sprinkled it on the walls and curtains outside the monastery. Later, a German nobleman bought it and redecorated it. He used at least 40,000 bones to decorate it, so later generations simply called it the Man Bone Church. To be honest, it's a bit gloomy and scary. It's goose bumps.
Kutnahola's Human Bone Church is a large European human bones church. Driving from CK, it parked for free. After buying tickets, it was shocked instantly. I just saw Halstadt's Human Bone Church. I felt that it was not a scale at all. The patterns of various skulls were amazing.
The town of Kutnahola is home to the famous St. Barbara Cathedral, but what is more impressive is the sixty thousand bones of the Sedlets Cathedral. The bones come mainly from religious wars and the Black Death, so Bohemia's funny "throwing out of the window event" is not a comedy at all, and its consequences are terrible.
The Czech Human Bone Church, which sounds like a creepy name, has a unique decoration in the eastern part of Prague. Although it is decorated with various white bones, it is highly artistic. Listening to the guide's introduction, because a plague "Black Death" took the lives of many people and there was no place to bury the bodies, so they had to be put in the open air. Later, some people decorated the white bones in the form of art in the church, which did not produce the sense of fear, but also buried the innocent victims by artistic methods. There are many visitors now. "tip" Church is actually located in Kutna Hora, but timid people are still careful to enter. The tickets are 90 Czech kroner per visitor, which is more than 20 yuan RMB. But it's really shocking to see.
When I was a child, I was attracted by the mystery of the Church of Bone Skeleton when I saw it in a geographic magazine. I drove from CK for about 3 hours. It guided a rugged road across the Czech countryside, step by step. It was so beautiful! The church was not big, it was absolutely shocked. It was cloudy and windy inside, so we had to have a strong will to stay for a long time.
In the Czech town of Sedletz in Kutnahora, there is a famous human skull church, where 40,000 skulls and foot bones are built and placed in various shapes. Of these, 30,000 died of the Black Death (plague) that ravaged Europe in the 13th and 17th centuries, and 10,000 died in war.
There is a Chinese introduction at the door, about the history of the church and the moral of the church built with human bones. You can take pictures, but you can't use flash. Not so terrible as I imagined, but feel that life is so fragile and sacred. Outside the church is a tomb, flowers crowded in front of the tomb, feeling very warm, birth, old age, illness and death are the process everyone must experience, it has no race, belief, the distinction between cheap and noble. Cherish life and treat family and friends kindly.
Human Bone Church is the reason why many people drive from Prague for more than two hours. Although the whole church is very small and hidden among a lot of cemeteries, but walking down the steps can have different feelings. There is no high dome and entering the door is like going down into the basement, but all kinds of human bones do not have that particularly gloomy feeling. They pieced together various kinds of bones. Patterns symbolize family history
