Church of the Damned
Haha not really, but it sounds cool doesn’t it? This church is known as the Cemetary Church of All Saints.
The area is one of the most visited tourist attractions in the Czech Republic with around 200,000 visitors per year. These morbid artworks are constructed from the bones of the masses of unknowns who died from the plague in the 14th century. The bones were retrieved from the mass burial graves as there was no time for individual graves back then.
Honestly, really beautiful, but it’s also terrible how these works of art were created. Imagine, all of these things were living, breathing, people at one point in time. Beautiful, yet horrible. Twisted, yet amazing. Such a thought provoking place would be on my list for the top places I would like to visit before I died. This is much like the wars we are beginning to discuss in class, however wars are not beautiful.
