Just by chance I discovered that St. Peter and St. Paul was hosting a classical concert on Monday night -- it was a brief walk from my hotel and on the opposite side of the square. Happily I found it (I was surprised that few people could tell me where it was -- churches abound and people don't necessarily know... More

We stayed in the Hotel Senacki which is just across the road from this Church and so we passed by 2 or 3 times a day and it was always busy with visitors. We looked around the church even though the outside is currently covered in scaffolding as it is being restored

We visited this church one evening after our meal for one of the concerts they host. It was one of the highlights of our trip to Kracow and I can't recommend it enough.

Enjoy a summer concert in the wonderful interior, or just pay a visit, but do enter the huge gate on the right of the Church and be delighted in a wonderful garden full of topiaries!

They have a great audio guide, for free, actually they ask for donations to the church, but it is nice to learn the history, so pay it. Totally worth it.

Impressive cathedral in which one can listen to concerts. The location is central in the old city so easy to find.

This baroque church is one of the must-sees in Cracow. It is located in the famous Grodzka st. leading from the Main Square up to the Wawel hill. The immense church is a splendid example of the baroque architecture, often hosting some cultural events (i.e. classical music concerts). The entrance is free, so do not omit that spot.

This church is unique as it pulls you inside with all of the fabulous statues OUTSIDE, lined up upon your entry. This was the first building in Krakow built in the Baroque architecture style. Inside the parents of Karol Wojtyla got married. Crypts inside too. Here's a TIP!!! Be sure to check out the times for when they have concerts... More

Most Baroque churches are painted in bright colours. The simplicity of the naked stone of its facade is quite interesting as it shows its 'bones'.

As with many of the other churches in the Krakow Old Town, this really is a gem which is worth visiting. In the night time, we enjoyed one of the classical concerts which took place in the church itself. Beautiful music in a very serene setting
