Not many sights really take your breath away, this one does. I always explore Catherdals and churches, visited more than I care to remember. So if i say don't miss this one, take it from me its special. The altar here not only stands out it blows you backwards! To recover, try the little cafe/ restaurant on the opposite corner,... More

This church will take your breath away. It is beyond words and has to be seen to be believed. Tucked away in a side street, Corpus Christi is one of those Churches that is magnifient at every turn. You will not be disappointed and ia visit shoud be on every agenda for visitors to Krakow.

The outside was relatively plain, once one entered the church it was amazing, so old, filled with carvings, paintings and the altar was huge and grand. So much gold, was lovely to know that the church still functioned and was used by local worshippers.

If you think all churches, especially Catholic Ones, are opulent beautifully structured buildings, you are probably right, but will think again when you see this fantastic place. We completely blown away with it. Do not miss it.

In the heart of the Jewish quarter this church is well worth a visit. The gold alter is stunning and a close second to the Alter at St Mary's in main square.

If churches are your thing this is a must. Breath taking and very spiritual atmosphere. A retreat from the hustle and bustle.

Very beautiful church, hidden in the very nice Kazimierz nabourhood. Defenitely worth visiting. Especially on a more sunny day the church looks really nice.
