Incredible, wonderful, amazing - I love these church! Although Sistine Chapel is in renaissance style I can see a lot of similarities to baroque "Fara" church. First of all this is beautiful church so you can participate in the mass, you can also make a tour or listen to the organ concert. Opening hours - from 6am to 7.30pm. It's... More

Just stumbled into this place (followed someone in). Wow, incredible, wonderful, amazing. Never seen such amazing ceiling art and marble craftsmanship, and to think there was no scaffolding involved, awe inspiring.

The interior of this church is very nice, very loaded on decoration baroque style but really nice...although a bit dark. I was very disappointing to learn that the marble columns are not real marble and that very few of "gold" moldings were not made of gold but normal paint; but even knowing that, it is a very impressive decoration they...

The parish church of St Stanislaus or the Lesser Basilica of St Stanislaus as it is now known is impressive. The beautiful facade with its vibrant colour alone is worth a visit. Built as a Jesuit Temple in the 17th century it is home to a 16th century crucifix and a precious copy of the painting of the Mother of... More

Super place of interest regardless of the visitors religious beliefs. The building as well as internal decoration is well worth a look.

Poznań Parish Church has a very nice architecturel structure and cool history. When I was in there, there was a ceremony and reliazed that place also had good resonance for voices and religious-songs. I enjoyed the picture and arts on the walls. Even if it is not a place to just come to see it, it worth the time when... More
