Sedlec Ossuary is popularly known as Bone Church. Around 1400, hundreds and thousands of skeletons were dug up to built this gothic church in the middle of the cemetery.

These bones have been artistically arranged to form decorations and furnishings for the chapel. Wikipedia describes:

Four enormous bell-shaped mounds occupy the corners of the chapel. An enormous chandelier of bones, which contains at least one of every bone in the human body, hangs from the center of the nave with garlands of skulls draping the vault. Other works include piers and monstrances flanking the altar, a large Schwarzenberg coat of arms, and the signature of Rint, also executed in bone, on the wall near the entrance.

Here are some of the photos of the bizarre bone church for you to look at.
