We visited the Church of St Peter and St Paul just because it was along the way to the Castle. We were really pleasantly surprised by how quaint and beautiful it was. The statues out the front are superb and the interior of the Church is worth seeing as well! Definitely stop by and have a look inside.

Another beautiful Krakow church with impressive statuary outside depicting the saints, and lavish decorative interior. In contrast, the crypt seems to have been newly painted bright white, with its endless rooms and corridors devoid of any furniture or articles. The church is also the venue for what appears to be nightly concerts, but we did not attend any of these.

Went in to have a quick look at first but was astounded by the beauty of the inside of the Church. The paintings and tapestries are amazing. You are also able to light a candle in there which a lot of churches dont allow. A must visit for everyone

I'll be honest I am not a church/cathedral person but this was stunning . I was blown away by the beauty and the architecture and art in the inside and outside of this building. Every direction you look there is something else to gaze at. Have a walk down from the main square and have a look on your way... More

We attended a classical music concert here [Vivaldi, Bach, Chopin etc.] and although expensive by Polish standards [Zl.60 per person], it was beautifully played and thoroughly enjoyable

This 1619 Jesuit church has one of the more interesting facades, it is not overwhelmingly tall like others, however impressive. The figures in the front are jesuit saints. There are also organ concerts held here. I think their organ is pretty impressive, but I am not a pro. "Every Thursday inside the Church, demonstrations are held of the longest Foucault... More

If you do what I did and had a travel guide throughout your travels, you learn a lot about the churches that are next to one another. I highly recommend a tour guide in Kraków, as there's so many little and big things you would miss out on learning if you didn't. These buildings are very old, but they are... More

St Peter and Paul’s is a beautiful baroque church, whose most impressive decoration is outside – the figures of twelve apostles. Inside is also worth a glimpse, though the interiors are not as impressive as some other Krakow churches. For these interested in history – famous Jesuit and politician Piotr Skarga is buried in the crypt of the church. This... More

This should be right at the top of everyone's to do list in Krakow, there's no words to explain how wonderful it is. Go a wee bit early to get front seats and do wrap up well, it's cold

It is a serene and inviting church that is spectacular from the inside but I really like the statues and relief work on the outside. While it is ethereal to listen to music inside the church, it is quite common to find solo artists or two or three people playing outside. Each time I have seen this, it has been... More
