It's an interesting church, with quite rich history - one of the oldest in Krakow. It's little in it but definitely worth a visit.

St Andrew’s is one of the oldest churches in Kraków. It was built in the 11th century and  it captivates with its austere Romanesque form, contrasting with the baroque spires added in the 17th century.

This church was very tiny, however it is very ornate. The Baroque style of art is evident. There was a gate separating the seating area from alter area. There was a table of holy cards by the entrance area.

This Church is one of the oldest churches in Krakow. Amazing. The outlooks is a bit different than the inside: baroque style interior decoration. Surprise yourself and visit.

Next to St Peter and Paul church and is beautiful inside although blocked off by iron gates so you have to peer through the bars. Interesting history shown on information sheet by entranceway.

We decided to go to this quaint small church for Sunday mass while visiting Krakow. It was very impressive. The choir were the nuns from the order of Poor Clare, they are cloistered and even though we couldn't see them they sang beautifully. After mass we talked to the priest outside who said the mass. Although the mass was in Polish it was very nice and it made me think about my grandparents who left Poland for the United States many years ago for a better life. It was an honor to visit the country and area where they came from . I highly recommend visiting the church of St. Andrew and it is right next to St. Peter and Paul Church.

This church stands next to the Saints Peter and Paul church and goes back to the late 11th century and is a rare surviving example of the European fortress church used for defensive purposes. It was the only church in Kraków to withstand the Mongol attack of 1241.
It's build in the romanesque style. The interior is baroque and has some nice paintings, but it is not as richly decorated as some of the other churches. Interesting is the pulpit. It has the shape of a boat. Nevertheless it's worth a visit. It's free.
At the back of the church is a cute little garden.

This is midway down Grodzka St next to St Peter & St Paul Church and the entrance is on the side of the building.
It dates back to the 11th century and is home to the St Clare Nuns.
Another good one to visit in Krakow.
Grodzka runs from the Castle to the Square.
Worth a visit when passing.

In a city with so many churches this small church was largely gated off to visitors. Those who wanted to pray and those who wanted to take pictures were put in same small place Rundown or old exterior appearance depending on your point of view

A must. The church is very unusual since it has no doors on the facade but you enter from the side. Inside is small and normally you must see from behind a metal gate but the pulpit is a beatify, in the shape of a boat made in silver and gold. Do not miss
