The remains of over 40,000 people provide the 'unusual' decoration for Bohemia's most notorious church.
The bones grace the walls, ceilings and floors. "It looks to me like a scene from a horror movie -- but it is very nice," comments one visitor. The decor was inspired by the need to address overcrowding in the cemetery during the 19th century. Townsfolk see the church as a place of worship but detractors say the dead should be left to rest in peace -- not pieces.
