This beautiful Roman Catholic church is located in the Old Town area and adjacent to the Franciscan Monastery. It has some stunning stained glass windows, created by Wyspianski, a multi-talented Polish designer. Worth a visit.

This was a marvellous church with a colourful and charming interior, with patterns that I have not seen in other Western churches before. The space before the altar is dark and brooding, and perfect for comtemplative prayer (and I say this as a Protestant). I very much enjoyed the interior design of this church. It is located just off the... More

The church is close to main street Grodzka so its easy to find it when you walk from main square to the Wawel castle. Great old sculptures and carvings..

This church is well worth a visit if only to see the stained glass. The ceiling is amazing as well as the wall coverings. A bit dark for photo's. The altar is colourful and has lovely windows on each side. Lots of side rooms to visit if they are open when you visit. Lovely church.

As a committed ABC (another b.... Church) adherent, and already a bit over the crowded tourist scene of Kraków, this was stunning. More than a little faded, it's beauty seemed real and unadorned by the polished gold and glitter of others. A little organ music while we were there only helped. One not to miss, but don't tell everybody -... More

Done usually as part of a walking tour it is beauty. Has a very gothic feel to it. The stained glass work is amazing. Remember this is an active church !!

Everything was perfect about it. Perfect to visit and see and being the time I went which was late morning, I felt almost like it was a personal tour lead by myself. Truly one of the top churches in beautiful Krakow.
