I haven't been to a lot of churches or cathedrals but this one really is beautiful. It's busy so there's not much time to linger but still worth seeing.

The interior of this building is very very good, and definitely worth taking a look, regardless if you are religious or not.

In my opinion it's the most beautiful church in the city. I'm not a religious person but whenever I am in Krakow I try to visit it.

I've stopped here several times while walking around the center. I liked the light, the colours of walls and stained glasses, the space inside in general, and sitting there in peace. Free entrance, not as crowded with tourists and richly decorated as St Mary, more suitable to contemplation.

It is a beautiful Church just off the main street in Krakow. Not impressive from the outside but the inside is worth seeing. Across the street is the building where Pope John Paul XXIII stayed when in Krakow. Beautiful stained glass windows. Great architecture.

The interior of this church is not to be missed. The stained-glass windows and the carved wood decor are marvelous. We were lucky enough to have Mass begin while we were inside.

This is really a very beautiful church. There is so many things to see, so many details that you must take enough time to look at it all. It's really a unique setting whcih I haven't seen that many times.
