Having never seen an ossuary, I was interested to see this, the key was held in museum next door. The lady very kindly let us in and gave us a great tour. Also see the foundations of an earlier chapel on site

I'm convinced that this is not the best attraction of Kranj. They have far better architecture, museums, lively town. They can leave the dead to rest in peace. Ossuary is near the arish churc in the central part of the city.

It's always kind of unpleasant to look at human bones and skulls but at the same time it has some eerie appeal and history behind it. Place is located next to the St. Kancijan church but you can access it by appointment at the Gorenjski...More
