The guide from the museum accompanied me and explained a few things about this very important historical site. Good leaflet in English as well. It really is a remarkable and sensitive restoration - a really aesthetically designed tribute to the ancient inhabitants of the Gorenska...More

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.

Kind of eerie place with all those bones and skuls. I didn't know we have one of those in Kranj. Interesting if you are fascinated by those sort of thing. Well kept colection.

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
