CITY TRIPPING CZECH REPUBLIC – Let’s ‘czech’ out alternative Prague, Olomouc, Ostrava and Brno
Bigger than Olomouc and Ostrava, Brno is probably your best bet if you want to pick just one of these 4 cities and stay there for a few days. It simply has a bit more to offer. Just strolling through the city center you’ll find heaps of nice places, but here’s a few special activities that you shouldn’t miss!
It might be slightly macabre, but if you dare, drop by at the Ossuary of St. James, Europe’s second largest ossuary. It was established in the 13th century, when cemeteries had become too small for the quickly expanding city, but was only discovered in 2001 during the renovation of a nearby square. The bones of over 50.000 people were placed inside the ossuary, most of the victims had died from the plague and cholera.
