Church of the Dead

In the Czech Republic is a church for haunters.

O.K., not exactly, but this should be on your bucket list if you are a haunter. Known as Sedlec Ossuary (also as the Church of Bones or the Cemetery Church of All Saints), this place, similar to the Catacombs of Paris, is built on a cemetery which came into existence due to the Black Plague. When it was time to build a church, something had to be done with the bones, so a monk apparently had the genius idea of--making a chandelier with human bones?! Yeah. He did. And it didn't stop there...
