Wroclaw: Wambierzyce and Skull Chapel Tour

Once you visit Wroclaw and have some additional time to discover Lower Silesia’s attractions and interesting places, we would suggest joining us for the tour to Wambierzyce and the Skull Chapel in Kudowa Zdroj. Wambierzyce is a frequently visited and popular pilgrimage site, often called the “Silesian Jerusalem”, situated in the picturesque Cedron valley on the eastern slopes of the Stolowe Mountains. It is the main attraction of the village and will make an impression thanks to its remarkable architecture. After visiting Wambierzyce, we will go to the town Kudowa – Zdroj and stop there to visit the unique Skull Chapel which is an absolute phenomenon. It is the only such monument in the country and one of the six in Europe. It may seem to be creepy but is worth seeing since it is so uncommon.
