What travelers say:

Kutner Hola BONE CHURCH Kutna Hora, the world’s most famous church of human bones, contains no less than 40,000 human bones, from the black death patients of the 14th century and the beginning of the 15th century"​ People who died in the Hussite war. When the small town of Kutna was repairing the church, there were bones that were dug up everywhere, and there was nowhere to put the bones in the mountains. Until 1870, the artist rint thought of simply using it. They came to decorate the church, thoroughly disinfected the bones and arranged them into various patterns such as chandeliers, crosses, door lintels, family crests and so on. So there was this human bone church. The birth! The courtyard outside the church is a cemetery. It is said that an abbot brought back a handful of soil from a pilgrimage to Jerusalem and scattered it in the courtyard of the church. Since then, the famous family members have been behind. It's proud to be buried here. The small courtyard is an inch of gold, and many cemeteries are buried here in one family. ​Walking into the scene does not give people a feeling of gloom and horror. On the contrary, it is very shocking and awe of death.
