“Really interesting - don't miss it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2014 NEW

A really beautiful little cathedral - well worth the visit. Don't miss out visiting the crypt - really interesting with lots of information on the audio guide. Most of the visitors are local as the history is important to them but as a visitor to Poland I found it really informative and spent an enjoyable couple of hours there. Outside in the courtyard of the castle, there are several places to have a cool drink, ice cream or coffee. Would definitely recommend this

“Very impressive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2014 NEW

This place offers free and paid entrances: if you are not interested too much, you can come inside for free and look around. Even in this case you’ll be impressed, no matter how religious (or not) you are. But admittance to the most interesting places is payable for a small fee. And guided tours are highly recommended - you’ll learn much interesting about this place and history of Krakow itself.

“stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2014 NEW

you pay a small amount to go in the cathedral, but it is worth it. The alter is stunning, and we read afterwards it had been broken up by the germans and destroyed, but found again and had been renovated to its currrent state and restored.
