“Beautiful church, Classical concerts daily”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

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, Vivaldi..etc.
It will cost 50 Pl per person (we haggled and got it for 40!)

“Baroque”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

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.

“Great exterior, lovely interior”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

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 half moon carved ceiling above. The crypt is closed at the moment for renovation works. A large beautiful church well worth a visit.

“church of St Peter & St Paul”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

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 ii parents were married in this church.
