Loved art nouveau floral design. Stained glass windows were unusual but in keeping with this beautiful church.

Just one of the beautiful churches open to the public to visit. All the churches are just beautiful and worth stopping to have a rest and a quiet reflective moment. You don't need to be religious to appreciate these wonderful churches.

This basilica is beautiful to see, and just a short walk from the main square. Our favorite part was seeing the pew used by Pope John Paul II when he was cardinal in Krakow. Yes, it's another lovely church in Europe, but it has a...More

We stumbled upon this cathedral by chance and could not believe it is free to get in. One inside you are in awe with the magnitude of the building, the echos and the amazing detail in the ceiling way above. In a way there is...More

Worth a visit as the interior feels very different to the others with the dark painted walls and ceilings. Beautiful and free to get in.

Another of the great Polish brick churches, with conservation happening in the cloisters. Sit in the church to adjust to the light through a series of wonderful modern (c.1900 and later) stained glass windows, and almost overwhelming neo-gothic wall and ceiling painting.

On their website they do list the first mass time as 6am on weekdays and 6:30am on Sundays. Last mass is at 7pm, so I think you should be fine visiting in between those hours. You can still visit while mass is started as... More
