From castles and European bison to lakes and lush greenery, there are so many sights to take in during your trip to Poland. A country rich in cultural history, beautiful landscapes and a ton of vodka deserves to be explored from the sprawling capital of Warsaw to the coastal city of Gdańsk. Here are 17 things you need to see and do on your next trip to Poland.
1. The Chapel of Skulls
This church is covered in thousands of skulls decorating the walls and ceilings, and over 21,000 skeletons stuffed in a crypt beneath it. Located inside of St. Bartholomew’s Church in Czermna, the skulls are the remaining remnants of the gruesome American Revolutionary War of the 1700s. It took the owners of the church 18 years to arrange the bones in intricate patterns that may give you the creeps, but it’s definitely a must-see tourist destination.
