Day 4 was spent mostly traveling to, from, and around the village of Kutna Hora which includes several UNESCO sites, all of which was another peak for the trip.
Our first stop was the Sedlec Ossuary, a small Roman Catholic chapel known for its decorative human bones, including skeletons of an estimated 40,000 to 70,000 people.
