We were taken to this church by our walking tour guide otherwise we would have missed it. Beautiful church. Was told lots of history about the stain glass window that depicts 'God' apparently the famous artist used a 'tramp' for the model. Also shown the pew where John Paul 11 used to sit when he went to the church.

this is being used for religious services and you are allowed to take photographs but you must be quiet if a service is on

You have to come here afternoon (2.00 PM-3.00 PM). Please go into the church thru main doors (from planty side), then turn your back, and take a look to main stained glass

Do not miss this lovely church, plenty to see and no charge. The stained glass by Stanislaw Wyspianski is amazing, and the various chapels are beautiful.
