The oldest church in Krakow

Built in the 11th century, this church is definitely worth the peak in that you are allowed. I could not get into the sanctuary but could see in. Beautiful and so historic!

When we left from Saint Peter and Paul church, we noticed a church right next to it. Intrigued, I went inside by the side door. The main door was closed! The inside was built in a typical Romanesque style. However, there were also some baroque decorations from the 18th century! Interesting! I discovered it was built in the 11th century... More

Definitely go inside. This church survived the 13th century destruction of Krakow. The church is just off Mary Magdalene square and next to Saint Peter and Paul church, all worth a look.

This very old church may get missed because of the very large St.Peter/St. Paul building next door and, although it is old, it is not too imposing ......but inside WOW! Also, take note of size of outside compared with inside......very thick walls!

This church has a great architectural design and standa tall in the city center. I like the fact that it us tight next to St-Paul's and St-Peters church. Nice for a few pictures.

Exterior spectacle in it's Romanesque architecture & so different to more usual Baroque styles However the interior has been heavily altered to the Baroque & being rather small inside I thought it looked terrible

Saint Andrew's is the enormous church next to Saint Peter and Paul's Church. Try as I did, I simply couldn't find a 'main' entrance. The only obvious entrance was a tiny side entrance, which led into what looked more like a small chapel than a main church. Difficult to rate this one because I don't think I saw whatever there...

Like many of the churches in Krakow, this one is ornately decorated and still in use today. If you are walking along the river, this is a nice quiet place to stop and rest.

This church sits next to Peter & paul's church on one of the main walkwyas of the Old Town. It looks very impressive on the outside, full of old historic charm. We went in through a side door (the only open entrance), but were struck by how small it was inside. I don't know if some of it is shut... More
