Near Prague in the Check Republic there is a Catholic Church in Kostnice it dates back to the time of John Huss and the wars known as the Hussite Wars. The place feels very bizarre once you enter it. The church contains between 40 000-70 000 skulls and bones of the victims of Hussaite Wars. They are arranged in various ways- thousands of them placed upon one another in the form of huge pyramids. Even the huge chandelier hanging down from the sealing is all made of human skulls and bones. Whats strange is that there is still Catholic Masses performed in this place, I wonder who would like to worship in the place like this. Just take a look at these pictures bellow… and be amazed at the Catholic celebration of death.
