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.

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.
