This is a gorgeous church, located next to the river bank near the Jewish quarter. The church features a beautiful façade and a nice looking garden. The interior of the church is quite opulent and features beautiful paintings and a lovely nave.

Paulite Church 'On the Rock' is a beautiful church on the river situated at ul. Skaleczna 15. We came here after visiting the castle and on the way to the Jewish Quarter (Kazimierz). Well worth a visit.

The church is located on a small hill, surrounded by a stone wall. The church reminds the death of Bishop Stanisław in 1079. You can visit the church if you are Middle Ages history lover. Interesting but not exciting.

Inspiring church and lovely installation of the three millennia on the exterior. Don't be fooled by St. Stanislaw and his water though - wow, pretty high in sulfur.
