Upon your 8:00am pick-up from your hotel in Prague, go to lovely trip through the Czech countryside. First of all visit the Sedlec ossuary with the beautiful cathedral. The ossuary in Sedlec according to the tradition, the abbot of Sedlec monastery, Henry, brought a handful of soil from the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem in the 13th century. He dispersed it on the monastery cemetery and it became so called Holy Field. The soil became the part of the Holy Land so a lot of people were buried here, not only from Bohemia, but also from Poland, Bavaria and Belgium. The chapel interior is quite remarkable. The decoration is made almost entirely of human bones. This building has been constructed as a reminder of the fact that human life is transient and death permanent. After exploring a nice architecture of the ossuary and cathedral in Sedlec will move to lovely town Kutná Hora where you see the main historical town in Czech and visit St. Barbara’s Cathedral and the Church of St. Jacob.
