Trip to Brno Part Two - SPOOKY!

This is a part two entry of our trip to Brno, Czech Republic.

For those who are very sensitive and naive to explicit photos of corpse - mummy, this is the link for you.

For those who have a habit of browsing over eating, keep off from this entry. Instead, here is the link for you.

Our first destination was Capuchin Crypt in Brno and this was the biggest highlight in this trip (at least to me). More information in terms of this spooky place can be found here.

I was bit reluctant to post photos I've taken there in this photoblog, however, I had to do so solely due to an enthusiastic request from Cintia - a visiting student from Argentina...

So here we go.

It costs 60 CZK (adult) and additional 30 CKZ for taking photos there.

From young to old when they were mummified, 24 mummified bodies of Capuchin monks are laid out in rows on the ground.

with a pile of bones...

Some are kept in coffins with glass lid. So I had to attach circular polarizing filter to the lens in order to reduce reflection and it really worked out fine.

This entry is dedicated to Cintia! I hope that she can enjoy photos posted here.

    日本で脳天気に暮らしている私には、衝撃的な光景です。想像を絶する歴史と、宗教的な価値観の違いがあるのでしょうか・・・? なんとざっくばらんな展示方法!世界は広く深いわぁ~(@Д@;
