Long May weekend: Konopiště and Kutná Hora

We decided to see two more things on our way back home. We were quite tired of the tourist approach we have followed for the past few days, so we made it rather quick.
First we passed by yet another hrad - Konopiště. Nothing special, i believe it must be more beautiful in the season. But we saw the peacocks - that was fun, they approached people really close.

After having a walk in the nearby park / forest we set off to Kutná Hora - a place that was recommended to us by our colleagues we had met earlier. We didn't see the city, we went directly into the Sedlec ossuary which is estimated to contain the bones of between 40,000 and 70,000 people. The chapel is really breathtaking. It's rather small and gives a goose pimp to everyone. I wouldn't like to stay there alone in the dark, really scary, but not only. It's somehow a spiritual place, making you think about life and death. Definitely worth seeing.
