Sedlec Ossuary

On my bucket list of trips I need to take is the Sedlec Ossuary in the Czech Republic. Anyone as fascinated by death as I am should also have this on a list. Of course, I also want to see the catacombs in Paris and Rome as well, so this should be a bone-tour.
What I like most about the Sedlec Ossuary is that it is above ground so that you can see the skulls and bones in natural light and that they are so beautifully arranged. I really must see the bone chandelier in person. If you want to see more amazing homes of the dead check out the Web Urbanist. My link goes to a page listing 13 unique cemeteries, but you'll find all kinds of interesting things on the site.
