All of the churches are beautiful. The interior paintings are different. What I liked was the exposition of the Blessed Sacrament

There are loads of good churches in Krakow - but this is in the top three. It was rebuilt and redecorated in the early 1900s, incorporating some (for then) ultra-modern designs. I particularly liked the stained glass in the window above the entrance. The side chapel also has a very unusual take on the 12 stages of the cross. Clearly... More

This church is gorgeous and should not be missed! Use the free, short audio guide and give a donation to the church. It dates back to the 13th century and is magnificent!
