Must visits:

A work of art from the Sedlec Ossuary (a.k.a. Kostnice), a small Christian chapel decorated with human bones in 1870 by a carpenter of about 40,000 people that died from the black plague in the 14th century. Read about this beauty Here (brownie points to Viru for this link).

Members of the Viennese art group Gelitin finished erecting a massive, pink, stuffed rabbit on the side of Colletto Fava, a 1,500m high hill in Italy. They called the bunny Hase which was first opened on September 18, 2005 and will be on Colletto Fava until 2025. I'm going to sleep on the bunnys tummy one day. weeeeee! : D

The forest swastika was a patch of carefully arranged larch trees covering a 60 sq yd area of pine forest near Zernikow, Germany. The reason behind the planting of the trees is unclear, but it has been suggested that it was laid out in 1937 by locals to prove their loyalty, after a businessman in the area was denounced and sent to a concentration camp by the Nazi Party for listening to the BBC, or that a zealous forester convinced local Hitler Youth members to plant the trees in commemoration of Hitler's birthday. I think this is rather spiffy. heh
