I hear it's lovely there in summer


So I think I know where I'd like to spend my next vacation. I mean, if I had money to fly myself to the Czech Republic, could find my way to Sedlec and secure a translator as I speak not a word of Czech or even Slovak.
Seriously though, I have a bit of a fascination with death, some of the more astute readers may have noticed that already. Don't ask me where it comes from, I really don't know.
The history of death is really quite interesting and this place is a monument to the weirdness and morbid tastes of days gone by.

*Sorry Sarah, I'll try to make my next post less... disturbing.

I've gotta admit that the bone and skull chandelier is mighty fascinating. Not for my house, mind you :)
