Czermna Chapel in Poland –

Bodies from victims of the Thirty Years’ War and the Silesian Wars adorn the Czermna Chapel in Poland. Built in 1176 by a local priest, bones surround visitors on the walls, and stretching in skull and crossbones over the ceiling-only they are real bones and not pirate décor. Builders of the chapel are especially honored-their skills can be found in the center of the chapel and placed on the altar.
