  • A very short trip. The only apparently such a chapel in Poland. A lot of skulls and bones. A tuple, nieporywająca the history of this tomb really. Parking lot 7 zl, entrance no adult £ 5, child 2.5. Waiting time-az will meet August group ... time to visit ... 8-10 min. Children liked (in the end curiosity of human bones) ... doroslemu so. But here it is worth it.

  • Certainly a place to visit while in the area. However, for people who visited Rome or Paris (the famous catacombs, where he was transferred and you can watch the remains of the many millions of people) the Chapel is no longer high. Disappointing attitude of religious sisters, which advocates for a few minutes about the history of the Chapel (the information is very poor), and the next minute fills up prayers. Is it really so hard to imagine that not all visitors are Catholics? Instead, it would be possible to ask the people of faith can deny the prayer for the dead in the adjoining Church. In Parisian catacombs, you can also take pictures (of course without a Flash) and no one is doing with this problem. Some museums (even in Poland) bring a charge for taking pictures and this is profitable to both parties.

  • Covered with the bones of thousands, including victims of the Thirty Years' War, this downright eerie chapel (and ossuary) is not for the faint at heart, but is a morbid curiosity, standing as a stark reminder to Poland's strong Catholic faith, as well as the turbulent past of the Polish-Czech border region.
