While on my visit to Krakow last July for World Youth Day, our group celebrated a mass at this particular church, followed by a prayer service with our accompanying archbishop. The church's architecture is stunning, though the true highlight of this church was something that was only there temporarily. We were privileged to pray before the relics of Blessed Pierre... More

Beautiful Gothic Basilica close to main square. Some amazing stonework and woodwork all over the church. Worth a visit to a lovely church which was very quiet on the couple of occasions we visited.

This is one of the 96 or so churches in Old Cracow. And for me, one of the most beautiful. The decor is unlike many other churches in Cracow, being much more restraint. You are not allowed to visit during the mass, but best to come and sit to listen to the congregation sings.

Krakow is not short on churches, and many are beautiful, but this monastery fascinated us with it's openness and lively bustle. Enjoyed being shown through by a local and chatted to a young monk who was busy helping with a young conference. Appreciated the lovely art in the corridors. This is very old and has a fascinating history.

This is a pretty little church set back from St. Mary's Basilica but it is quite impressive and a good place to sit for a time of contemplation. There is no fee for visiting.

This baroque church was designed and completed in a relatively short period of time and illustrates a unitary coherent design concept. Baroque embellishments are typically exhuberent.

One of the largest cathedrals in Krakow. Outstanding architecture with long history. Worth a see while visiting Old Town.
