Brno

My friend and I spent a weekend in the lovely city of Brno in 1999 visiting the sights including the Capucine Monastery. The Monastery in the photos is Capucine Monastery (Kapucínská hrobka a kostel Nalezení sv. Kříže v Brnĕ Řádu Menších bratří kapucínů). The church contains mummified corspes. We saw the mummified corpses of monks and others which have been preserved by dry air since 1658. The last people were buried in the crypt of the church in 1787.
