impressive from the outside, nice interior

Very beautifull interior in baroque style. Do not miss the pulpit in the shape of a boat with lot of golden putties.

The church is the oldest in Krakow. It was build as a fortress church and you can see the signes of it on the outside walls. Of course inside it was completely changed during the centuries but outside it is very very old.

Lovely church located just south of the main square. I believe its 11th century but I'm not entirely sure and has been used for the same purpose by the same order since it's creation. well worth the detour off the square to see the architecture.

Nothing special but as with all churches, the interior is quiet and worth a look. Include it on any stroll.

One of the most beautiful churches and the best-preserved examples of Romanesque architecture (built between 1079 - 1098) in Kraków and in Poland. It is also a rare and unique surviving example of the European fortress church used for defensive purposes, the church was the only one in Kraków to withstand the first Mongol Invasion of Poland in 1240-1241.

A really beautiful church. I assume its connected to the convent as the main body of the church is gated off. It appeared to be the most ornate church in Krakow. This may be because its quite short. When we were there it was still decorated for Christmas - absolutely beautiful.

Looks beautiful. But have to rate it 4 compared to Virgin Mary's. But just go church hopping around the square for a day or spread them out over two actually because you get sick of seeing church altar pieces after a while, no matter how beautiful

Beautiful old, very old church (app. 900 years old). While on Grodzka street you cannot miss that one. Just next to Saints Peter and Paul church.

Open the door, move the curtain and inside and the altar and pulpit are worth a photo or two. They are behind a locked grill but it doesn't spoil the view. It is easy too miss but don't. The information board inside talks about the Order of Clare and a notice board in the courtyard details the church. Popular with... More

This small church is easy to miss but if you visit St Peter and Paul's much larger church next door, take the time to visit. Not the most attractive externally, its beauty is all internal. Don't miss it.
