The first thing you notice when you walk in is just how big it is. The alter which was being worked on is a long way from the door, the carving are a wonder. It’s a wonder the church wasn't plundered in the war as some of the fittings are truly amazing. Didn’t have long to take a good look... More

I always like visiting churches on holidays as much to take stock of things between eating and drinking to excess. This church did the trick. Beautiful!

Poland's rulers and the majority of its citizenry are fiercely Catholic and even in the heart of the restored Jewish quarter (not to be confused with the ghetto in Podgorze where inmates were interred prior to the WWII liquidation and annihilation) there stands this massive Church with an antique interior dedicated to Christ in the Blessed Sacrament. A must see... More

This church situated in the Jewish quarter, is just gorgeous. I have not seen all the church's and cathedrals in Krakow (i think there are around 120) but I have seen a few and they are extremely ornate. Black and gold seems to be the theme, but they are all individual and this one really struck a chord, definitely worth... More

St Stanislaus (Kazimerczyk) is entombed here. He died in 1489. He was beatified by the Pope in April of 1993 and canonised by Benedict XVI in October, 2010. The arches in the interior rise it seems everywhere. No matter what "religion" or walk by faith in Christ, it is truly amazing to see this 600 years after his death.

Visited this church as part of a city tour. Our guide took us to the church and invited us to go inside. I have never seen a place of worship so ornately decorated, everything is either black or gold coloured. The church is moderate in size but the style of decoration enhances the overall appearance. I would have no hesitation... More
