The Church of St Peter and St. Paul is a magnificent church with dark wood and a lot of gilding. However, I went there expressly to hear an organ concert (for which there is a fee.) What they did was set up folding chairs for the audience facing the back of the church so we could see the organ loft,... More

Possibly, it is the statues that bring the most attention to the church. But like many churches and cathedrals throughout Europe each one has it is own characteristics that makes it worth seeing.

Krakow has many lovely and historic churches and buildings, and this is one you'll want to see, too. Outside, the statues of the 12 Apostles attract the eye. The interior is beautiful, too. And thanks to the wonderful acoustics, frequent concerts are held here. We were blessed to hear part of one during our (all too) brief time here.

This must be seen.Tranquil and beautiful and not overly imposing. Sit for a moment and reflect. Best entered either early in the day or just before closing to avoid too crowded.

Worth a visit with everything else in the area. Just stop, enter, breath, recharge your batteries for a few minutes, by listening to your heart.

The outside had scaffolding on when we visited however we could appreciate the lovely outside. Inside was beautiful too but not as stunning as the church on the main square. Having said this it's still worth the visit.

Once inside it is very impressive. Inside is very interesting and well worth a visit, especially when a concert is on. I would have liked to see the beautiful facade without the scaffolding

An interesting and rewarding experience of a stunning tribute to faith. Many side chapels, all very ornate. Interesting if somewhat bare crypt. Could not make it to a concert but I can imagine that they are grand.
