Capuchin Crypt and Church

  Kapucínské náměstí 303/5     more than a year ago

If mummified bodies are your thing, get yourself to the crypt of the Capuchin Monastery, quick sharp. The monks found here supposedly considered coffins to be a luxury, and thus their bodies were left to eternity. The practice was outlawed in the 18th century for hygiene reasons, but the bodies remain an interesting attraction and valuable scientific resource.
