This church was one of the most popular places to get buried in Bohemia (modern-day Czechia).

The Sedlec Ossuary in the Czech Republic is known as “The Bone Church.” That’s because once you enter, you’re greeted with thousands of human bones.

This chandelier contains nearly every bone in the human body. The church features six enormous skull pyramids.

In the 13th century, the church scattered “holy soil” from Jerusalem on its cemetery. It became one of the most desired places to get buried in all of Bohemia. 30,000 people were buried there; until they ran out of room.

All the bodies had to be moved from the ground into a crypt. In 1870, a local woodcarver was charged with a dark task. He bleached the thousands of bones from the crypt and arranged them around the church. He even left his signature in bones.

The church is one of the most popular tourist spots in the country. Just try not to get too creeped out.
