The outside hides the opulence inside. There are a few items to track down but you'll have to visit to find out what. Ornamentation adorns practically every surface.

You need to pay attention to the visiting hours. We tried so many times and couldn't find it open. There is a castle though, and a little park behind the church. You can catch a great view of the city from the top.

Here is another one that you have to see in person. The pictures and videos you take will not do it justice. If you love old churches, please add this one to your list.

I stumbled upon this lovely church while walking through the city of Poznan. It was a lovely surprise. Spent a few minutes just sitting, it was peaceful.

Definitely worthy of a visit--as nice as any church in the rest of Europe. No charge, just walk in and enjoy the beautiful architecture and artwork.

Although, the exterior of this church is plain yellow, the color is perfectly contrast with the Royal Castle of Poznan. The interior is also nice.

I love architecture and like to see the differences in Churches and I like to light a candle and say a little prayer to my loved ones whenever I can.

Like many of the Franciscan Churches, the exterior may seem quite austere and not like an invite to enter, but as soon as you'll see the beautiful ornated and painted interior, you'll change your opinion. It's not so far from the city center, so there...More

The outside appearance is rather simple and plain and does not at all prepare you for the beauty of the interior. This church is just off market square. It is a spectacle worth seeing. Try to avoid mass times as it is a very popular...More
