“Lovely new church”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

We spent a couple of hours here and were impressed by the faithful. We went to Mass at the end of the day at the main church and then to the devotions in the chapel. It was worth the visit.

“Chapel is Worth the Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

The Basilica is huge and pretty, but for us the main attraction was the convent chapel. The relics of St Faustina and the prayerful atmosphere make it worth an hour for prayer (and maybe a little rubber-necking)
Be advised you are not allowed to take photos in the chapel or the basilica.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

The new church is large and very modern and beautiful in it's own way. We had Mass in the largest of the small chapels - the one with the relic of St. Faustina. The grounds have some shops and a place to eat.

“Beautiful Holy place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

We got here on the Tram 22, I think there are to other routes to here as well. The stop is on the far side of a very busy road so use of the underpass is compulsory (not great if you don't like stairs). Anyway, the walk up the hill is very pleasant and the noise of the road is soon history. The Sanctuary is on the right 150 metres beyond the station. The peaceful grounds are wonderful and the atmosphere very serine. There is a modern church at the back of the main building, but its the small older church that is really wonderful, there was a Mass going on and it was nice to be invited in to take part. I would recommend for a different experience in Krakow. Excellent.

“Must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

It was a holly experience and quiet peacefull. It's easy to find and well worth worth the trip. We took the tram from our hotel in the main square and took only 15 min to get there.
