Central Bohemia, a land which sounds equally charming and cryptic. A region rich in castles and countryside, and deep valleys flanked by dense forests. Of course, the mystery fades away slightly when you learn the administrative centre of the region is Prague, one of the best city-break destinations in the world. But, a short hop from the city, and you’ll be transported deeper into the history and intrigue of the Czech Republic, which shouldn’t be overlooked when one is visiting the capital.

If you’re as intrigued by unique architecture and uncommon attractions as I am, then a Chapel of Bones is certain to pique your interest. A mere hour by train from Prague and you’ll arrive at Kutna Hora. Close to the edge of the Central Bohemia region, this old silver mining city makes for a perfect day-trip, although an overnight stay will allow you the time to visit nearby Třebešice Castle and the charming town of Čáslav.

It was a dark winters day when I arrived at Kutna Hora, the clouds were dramatic and imposing, perfectly setting the stage for the first port of call, the Sedlec Ossuary.
