Got up decently early, got ready and had my breakfast (Got to love hostels that feed you!). Then I was off to grab a train to Kutna Hora. Had a great nap on the train and luckily woke up just before the stop. Once in Kutna Hora, my first stop was the main attraction of the town, the bone church.
The Sedlec Ossuary is a church that is decorated with 40 thousand human bones including a chandelier that has at least one of every bone in the human body in it.  There were strings of skulls and bones on the walls and the roof. There is also a family crest made out of the bones. It was quite creepy but really interesting to see at the same time.
Had some ice cream while heading towards town, the summer sun is deffinatley starting to shine now! I got a little lost and made it to the edge of old town just as it was time to head back to the station to catch my train back to Prague. I guess this way it is another reason to go back.
Once back in Prague I spent some time wandering around and checking out the market stalls. Last time I was here I bought a stein for someone else and always wished I had one too, so time to remedy that!
I decided to take a break from the pork and dumplings and went to a Thai restaurant for supper. So yummy, and it was nice to have some food with a bit of a kick again. After dinner I headed back to the hostel and just had a quiet night.
