Pile of wishes

coin pile

There is a strange little church in the Czech Republic called Sedlec Ossuary. It’s insides have been ordained with the bones of thousands of humans. It’s really a strange and slightly creepy place to visit… but in my opinion definitely worth it (more pictures coming soon). Much like a wishing well, it seems visitors throw coins in among the bones and, presumably, make a wish. I wonder what happens to the money? Does somebody clear it out from time to time? And on clearing the coins, does that invalidate the wish? Judging by this pile it certainly hasn’t been cleared out any time recently so here’s to hoping all those wishes came true.
