Osario de Sedlec


A gothic abbey entirely decorated with human bones

  • We recommend you take a closer look at the chandelier located in the central area of the nave, for which each and every bone of the human body and the Schwarzenberg family coat of arms were used.


  • Its origin dates back to a trip made by the abbot of the monastery of the Cistercian Order to the Holy Land in 1278.


  • On his return, he brought a small amount of Golgotha soil with him and scattered it in the temple cemetery, making it an attractive place of eternal rest.


  • In 1400 the church of the cemetery was built, with a vault on an upper level and a chapel in the basement as an ossuary.


  • The plague of the fourteenth century, as well as the civil wars that decimated Bohemia, triggered the number of burials, so many remains were exhumed and transferred to the chapel.


  • In 1870, the Schwarzenberg family hired the carver František Rint, to sort the bones accumulated there.


  • The present appearance of the ossuary is the result of his work.

  • The city spread across the Vrchlice valley from mining settlements scattered throughout the region.


  • A Mint (10th century), a Cistercian monastery (12th century) and numerous small hermitages also dotted the territory.


  • Thanks to the exploitation of the silver mines in the area between the thirteenth and sixteenth centuries, Kutna Hora achieved great economic development, which allowed the realization of the many works that constitute its very rich artistic heritage.


  • The flood of the richest mines in silver, the successive wars and the Black Death plunged the city into ruin, ending centuries of splendor.
