“Beautiful Holy place”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

We got here on the Tram 22, I think there are to other routes to here as well. The stop is on the far side of a very busy road so use of the underpass is compulsory (not great if you don't like stairs). Anyway, the walk up the hill is very pleasant and the noise of the road is soon history. The Sanctuary is on the right 150 metres beyond the station. The peaceful grounds are wonderful and the atmosphere very serine. There is a modern church at the back of the main building, but its the small older church that is really wonderful, there was a Mass going on and it was nice to be invited in to take part. I would recommend for a different experience in Krakow. Excellent.

“Must see”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

It was a holly experience and quiet peacefull. It's easy to find and well worth worth the trip. We took the tram from our hotel in the main square and took only 15 min to get there.

“A sacred place”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

The Sanctuary is beautiful, amazing people with so much devotion, and prayerful, we did not have much time to sit and meditate and pray in the old sanctuary , the modern church is also very energised and with good feelings too, once again a visit to Krakow needs much more time. We were unable to buy some religious stuff as there were no shops.

“Neat to experience it!”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

As is often the case a very large and modern edifice has been constructed so this aspect I liked a bit less but it was still very cool to participate in the daily recitation of the novena.
The original chapel is beautiful so be sure to visit it!
