Similar to St. Mary’s Basilica on the main square this church has a tremendously ornate interior, decorated over every square millimetre of surface. The altarpiece is wonderfully ornate (it may not have been designed by Veit Stoss but at least it’s free to look at)...More

As a Catholic, it was a highlight of part of the city tour with Discover Krakow. Our guide pointed out special points of interest and explained the Nativity Scene that was awarded this year.

I am not a believer myself, but like to visit interesting churches and cathedrals, especially those with special links to history. I don't think I have ever visited a church (or cathedral) with such a beautiful, colourful interior as this one. Sadly, it's a little...More

Next to a Plac Wszystkich Swietych tram stop there is a brick-built church. It seems very plain on the outside, but once you arrive inside it is brilliantly painted. It was very quiet, too. It was a nice place to shelter from the cold and...More

We were recommended to visit because of the colours and stained glass. The stained glass was indeed good but the walls were a bit of a let down as it was so dark inside the church that they were only just visible. I'd say it...More
