Jesu in Rome, beautiful and sacred. Listened to a beautiful soprano singing on the steps one evening and noticed they have concerts there frequently.

The interior is imprsssive because of the huge marble alter and over the doorway sits a pipe organ with beatiful carvings. There are organ concerts every day at 4:30pm and at 8pm are orchestral concerts. The programme of music is well publicised

A very pretty church right in the middle of town. The interior is beautiful, its more like a small cathedral, with huge altar, organ, and artwork all around. Very peaceful atmosphere. I attended a classic music concert in the evening, and was quite pleasing to hear live music played by local artistes. They played many classic favorites like Brahms, Bach,... More

This church is a classic example of Baroque architecture and is on Grodska Street (which has a lot of shopping locations on it). There are concerts held here in the evenings (there is a charge for that). Although I was unable to attend the concert, a friend of mine did and enjoyed it very much.

Walking along Grodzka Street you cannot miss the Saints Peter & Paul church due to the huge statues of the 12 apostles on the outside. The exterior is beautiful as is the interior. Lots of altars with pictures and statues on them. The organ is huge and has plenty of cherubs and angels around it. Lovely main altar with stone... More

This is a lovely church both inside and out. We did the audio guide which was informative and a perfect length. We went back in the evening for a concert. The only disappointing thing was missing out on the talk about the pendulum which is held on Thursdays. The interesting thing the volunteer told us was that Pope John Paul... More

We were too late to go inside but it was worth visiting to see the statues of the twelve apostles. The craftsmanship is spectacular. St Andrews church is next door

We are in Krakow now and we have just walked past this church. The statues look amazing and where it has been snowing here it has rested on the statues and looks so beautiful. Worth taking a look especially if its been snowing on them!
