About the Chapel

The Skull Chapel in Czermna stores 25,000 to 30,000 skulls. One part of the collection is displayed by the altar but most of it is hidden under the chapel floor. The construction of the Skull Chapel in Czermna was initiated by the local priest Wacław Tomaszek. In the village environs he could find burial mounds and remains of victims, probably those of the 1744 - 1745 Silesian Wars or of the 1756 - 1763 Seven Years´ War. Each relic is authentic and used to belong to a particular person. Therefore, Wacław Tomaszek had a respectable burial site constructed for the victims at the end of the 18th century.
