We were staying opposite this Church and spent a lot of time admiring the architecture from our bedroom window and watching all the visitors to the place. It is different from many churches in that the statues of the 12 apostles are depicted on the outside wall and that there are gates which are closed at the end of each... More

You can se the two spires from some distance but you know you are there when you see the wall adorned with statues that form the garden/court yard in front of the church. There is a crypt below the altar that can be entered for a donation to the upkeep of the church. It has recently been redone and has... More

This church was founded by Sigismund III Vasa at the beginning of the 17th century and it was the first baroque church to be built in Poland. A little bit of Swedish history in a way.We saw a classical music concert in the evening in the church when we were there, it was absolutely amazing.

Located opposite the Hotel Senacki in the pedestrian precinct of Grodzka, this Jesuit church dates back to the early 17th century. Remarkable are the stone sculptures of the twelve apostles outside. Inside classical concerts are offered most nights of the week, usually at 8 p.m. When we went there the Cracow Chamber Orchestra of Saint Maurice played works by Bach,... More

A beautifully decorated church both inside and out. You can go in the crypt for a small contribution to the upkeep of the church but it was still under construction when we went

This church is worth a visit if you are in the area. However, it is not one of Krakow's best. The outside really needs a facelift.

I visited the church a couple of times and I was lucky to get an audioguide in English, for free. It is definitely worth spending some time admiring all the details. I loved it so much that I bought a ticket for a concert with the Chamber Orchestra of Saint Maurice. The acoustics were great, but I felt that the... More

Beautiful church, free to visit. Nicely decorated. Easily to visit when walking from old town to the castle. Also the gate is a masterpiece. Must see while in Cracow.
