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.

We came here on a late Sunday morning during a service and had a nice time. Both internal and external architectures are simply remarkable. Highly recommended

The history of the building and its story is fascinating. Personally i think some of the other curches are a lot more beautiful but well worth a visit for the history

I visited here with my husband in April, the church is in a very tranquil area and nice to wander around. The church iteself is very lavish inside, there is lots of gold decoration. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Krakow.

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.
