Lovely small church

This is one of the oldest churches in Krakow and you can walk through a gateway at the side to see the convent and its gardens. Very ornate inside the small church.

We entered in this chirch almost by coincidence and we had a great surprise. During praying time nuns sing melodious songs. Interior is fabulous. A must see. The pulpit has a very nice and unusual boat shape: really nice.

a very cool church if for the fact that its size is very deceptive.. looks quite massive form the outside but once inside you realise it is mostly walls... tiny little chappel with a very impressive wrought iron gate

Next to the Peter and Paul church you will find this nice little church with lot's of gold inside. Takes just a few minutes of your time, so have a look inside.

This small church is worth a visit to see the stunning interior. It is usually locked but you can see the interior through bars and you can take photographs. Beautiful ceiling and altar. The boat is very ornate as is the green organ surround. Beautiful church well worth a visit.

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.

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.
