I am torn between calling this place creepy and somehow fascinating. For sure dont bring the children there.

Definitely a must see. The chapel is rather small and you can only enter it with a guide who tells the story of its creation. You're not allowed to take photos inside.

It is a place that requires a special mood and concetration. Definitely not for children or else you will not feel it. It was constructed first in 1776 by a Czech priest. The bones reached the number of 30.000 people.

Get there early as it gets very busy. We visited on Sunday morning and there was a long queue and a half an hour wait just as it opened.

Was a little unsure how I would feel entering this chapel of skulls. Essentially a mass grave of skulls and femurs make up the walls/ceiling here. When you realise you are looking at 3000 skulls then a basement door is lifted, you peer in and...More

This is a small late Baroque one-room chapel where a local priest in late 18th century had gathered thousands of skulls of victims of wars and epidemics from local graves. For such a macabre room the lighting and neatly arranged skulls and femurs give you...More

It's a small chapel with a lot of bones. You have to pay some for the entrance and for parking and then a nun will tell you in Polish all about the chapel after you get in with a lot of others. This all takes...More

Very surreal place to visit I must say. The guide told the history in Polish so couldn't catch everything he said but he did give me a basic translation sheet when I told him I was English & far from fluent in Polish. Looking at...More

A place definitely to see if you are interested in history. Place is walkable from the nature park or "park zdrojowy" and should take around 15-20 min.

You pay a few quid to get in and a nun tells you the history behind the chapel. All in polish but you can ask for a leaflet in English. A definite must.
