Beautiful stained glass windows that were made here in Krakow by local masters (visit Stained Glass Museum for more), playfully decorated walls, and magnificent ceilings!

We visited here during our excellent walking tour of Kraków and were particularly taken by the stunning windows, particularly the most modern one depicting God creating the universe. Neither of us are overly religious but this was a striking church with a fantastic history, especially the windows and the stories they illustrated. There is no fee to enter the church... More

It is well worth a visit to see this church. It is amazing inside. Like most Polish churches you are not allowed to take photos inside.

The windows in this church are amazingly beautiful, as are the painted walls. Best of all it is free to visit!

Not spectacular architecturally but a wonderful art nouveau interior. If you think that you don't like modern stained glass, then open your mind to this - it is magnificent. Just off the Planty, a few minutes from the main square.

We visited this Church as part of a walking tour. It is near the university and window dedicated to Pope John Paul 2. The interior is above the average we saw in Krakow and there was an amazing Nativity Scene still on display in late January. Entry is free and this is recommended above many of the others in the...

Attended a wedding in this lovely old church. Serene and peaceful. Currently under renovation to make it spectacular.
