Today thanks to the media, the world renowned kostnice (ossuary) in Sedlec near Kutná Hora with more than 300,000
visitors is now the most visited sight in Central Bohemia Region. The kostnice (ossuary) is an underground chapel of All Saints Cemetery and originally was a part of the Cistercian abbey in Sedlec, which was founded
in 1142 by Miroslav of Markvartic. The church was built in the 14th century as a carnery. It consists of two chapels being built
one on top of the other and according to the most recent surveys, this was built alongside other outside buildings that made up the entire abbey, as they tried to draw closer to its Jerusalem inspired design.
